Information Specialists

Your Information Specialist can show you how to use information resources effectively. Your Library Subject Guide is a collection of relevant resources plus help and support.

Information Specialists work in partnership with faculties, schools and programme teams to deliver information services in support of teaching and learning.

Each Information Specialist has responsibility for working with a group of subject areas and apply their knowledge and expertise in information management in a wide academic context – selecting and organising material for library collections (both physical and electronic), facilitating the use of information management tools, supporting the development of information literacy skills, and supporting the management of corporate information and University records.
