Support for Researchers: Home

The Library provides a wide range of services and support for Postgraduate Researchers. We contribute sessions to the University's Research Development Programme and our team of Academic Librarians provide support for researchers by email and appointment.

We are advocates for Open Access in a number of ways. We oversee the development of UBIR, the University's research repository and enable scholarly publishing via various transformative agreements
