Library Outreach

Our Library has created workshops for schools and colleges to develop students' information literacy skills. See what they have on offer here.

Our Study Skills for Sixth Form website has information on referencing, finding & evaluating sources, how to use the university library and more. These skills are an essential part of studying for a degree, so this resource is an excellent way to prepare your Y13 students for university.

We also have created 8 short study skills lessons which students can work through at home, available here: Study Skills for Sixth Form Education Pack

Students looking for resources for their EPQ can visit our Newcastle University Library website to access free, scholarly research articles online. Watch this short video tutorial to find out how to use this resource.
