Library Visits

School and college groups are welcome to visit to the Library for tours and taught sessions.

Our Library visits are designed to help school and college students develop their information literacy skills and give them the opportunity to study in an academic library.

Our How to Research in a University Library workshop is ideal for sixth formers and supports the taught skills element of the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) whilst our award-winning Study Skills for Sixth Form website provides further support.
