Subject Librarian support for your studies

Lauren Cummings, your Subject Librarian can help you with finding the best resources for your research and assignments.

Book an appointment with your Subject Librarian

I offer one-to-ones in the library or online using Microsoft Teams. I can help you find online resources for your assignments and help you reference correctly.

You can of course drop me an email too with any questions or support requests. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if I can help support you (students or staff).

You can also book one-to-ones with Academic Support for study skills help, or the Royal Literary Fellows for help with academic writing.
