We are always happy to hear from you, whether you need help finding a reference, using a resource, or would like to suggest how we can change our services to make your life easier.‚Äč

Get in touch!

Library staff are available online to help with your research on weekdays, 9am-5pm. If we can't answer your question quickly by email, you can book an appointment with us to provide more in-depth support. You will find the link to the booking system in the contact details for your Information Specialist, under the Our staff tab, or on your subject guide.


You can also find our advice on referencing, research activities, and support for off-site students by using the Help and Support area.
