Free, drop-in consultations with a Study Smart Librarian are available at your campus library from Tuesday, 15th August.

Our Study Smart Librarians are experts at researching topics, academic writing, understanding referencing styles and more. They can advise you at one-to-one consultations to help you improve your skills and succeed at university.

What is a Study Smart Librarian consultation?

  • A one-to-one study skills session tailored to you
  • Get skills support for referencing and citation or search strategies to find the best information for your academic writing.
  • Consultations are up to 20 minutes long.

When are drop-in consultations available?

Not on campus for the drop-in times?

Why should I meet a Study Smart Librarian?

We know managing information overload at the start of university can be really challenging. You may have solved the puzzle of the Western room codes, but where do you begin with your first writing task?

Library staff can guide you in the right direction to essential study resources, tools and services that will keep you organised, save you time and reduce study stress.

If you’re ready to ‘go beyond Google’ to access better resources, tips and advice for your study, come to the Library to Study Smart in Spring.
