Getting Help with Referencing.

The library provides several resources to help improve your referencing skills. You can contact us for an appointment, send us an email at or sign up for RefWorks.

Book a 1-2-1 appointment with a Librarian

Get 1-2-1 help with your research!

In addition to the teaching we do as part of your degree programme and our open workshop training programme, we also offer 1-2-1 or small group appointments with our specialist Information and Academic Skills Librarians.

What are 1-2-1 appointments for?

They are a space to receive tailored advice and support that is specific to your assignment or topic area. The librarians can help you think about key words or concepts for searching, building a search strategy, using specific databases and referencing your sources.

How long is an appointment?

Appointments are limited to 25 minutes. To ensure equality of access to all users, please do not book multiple appointments on the same day.
