Academic Librarians at the University of Bolton

What can the Academic Librarians do for you?

We are responsible for identifying and meeting the information needs of academic staff and students within their subject areas.

These responsibilities include enquiry work; selection of books, journals and databases in their subject area, and management of the Library stock. We produce subject-specific user and database guides and crib sheets on a wide range of topics to help with finding and using academic information.

We also offer help with:

  • accessing all aspects of library services, including induction and ongoing support throughout the year
  • finding and making the most of information from both print and electronic sources
  • correct bibliographic citing and referencing
  • research and study skills
  • online searching

For academic staff we provide information on the acquisition of resources, user education sessions and a point of contact for all your Library needs. 

You can get help with these areas by booking an online appointment with an Academic Librarian.To book an appointment with a specific member of the team visit their profile page.
