Library Instructions for Teaching

The University Library offers the University's students and academic staff a comprehensive programme of instruction in literature research and reference management.

As a central component of the BIS's interdisciplinary instruction service, the subject librarians offer subject-specific training sessions to help you teach research skills (e.g. researching specialised databases). We develop the training sessions in consultation with you and integrate them into your course.
