Your subject-specific guide to using library resources.
This resource has been compiled by a collaborative team of Library staff and student volunteers.
Our student volunteers:

Graduated in July 2020 with a Sociology BA Hons, Dorothy is hoping to continue into the field of youth work & counselling.

Based at the Philip Robinson Library, Martyn works with the SAgE and HASS liaison teams, assisting staff and students with access to electronic and print library resources and the production and maintenance of online reading lists.
While at work at the Walton Library, Elizabeth dabbles in a bit of everything: assisting with queries at the front desk, creating and maintaining reading lists, monitoring the Walton’s social media, classifying and processing new books and materials, handling reservation requests and creating physical displays within the Library.
Helen is based at the Walton Library offering frontline services to staff and students. When Helen is not assisting students on the front desk with enquiries such as interlibrary loans, and reservations, she may be found labelling books, creating new social media content, assisting with displays and art and crafts events or amongst the books, shelving.
Christina is based in the Philip Robinson library and works in the Liaison Team and Customer Services. Her role in the Liaison Team includes supporting staff and students’ access to library resources and producing and maintaining online reading lists and subject guides. In Customer Services, she assists with face to face and online enquiries, as well as producing marketing materials. She creates content and monitors social media accounts for both teams.
The Coronavirus pandemic has provided fertile ground for misinformation and conspiracy theories. During the past year, fake news around the origins of the virus and the efficacy and side effects of the vaccines have spread rapidly. Our Fake News Guide will help you sort fact from fiction.
