Learning to use the Library

We’ve got online courses and video guides to help you get the most out of the Library. Plus find out how to request training for your Tavistock and Portman course group

Our Information Skills Trainer Mathieu Lubrun is happy to give training sessions embedded into academic long courses. Mostly these are pre-arranged with your tutors, but if you find that this hasn’t happened, do request that your tutor arranges a session for your group.

Student group sessions:

  • Introduction to the Library
  • Basic and Advanced Database Searching
  • Using EndNote to manage your references
  • Citing and Referencing
  • Avoiding Plagiarism
  • Critical Appraisal

If you need some immediate help, staff and students can check out the Information Skills Moodle page.
