Newcastle University Library has two Education Officers, Sara Bird and Gillian Johnston, who work with colleagues to create links with local schools and colleges. We welcome visits from school parties offering handling sessions, source evaluation, A-Level study sessions, cholera investigation and games. Where possible we try to tailor each visit to the individual needs of the group.

As well as 'traditional' academic resources, social media is, increasingly, an excellent way of keeping up to date with your subject area. You really can't afford to ignore it! Not convinced? Check out our selection of social media links for your subject.
