I support the teaching and research activity in the Chemistry department, Centre for Environmental Policy and the Grantham Institute for Climate Change. Teaching and training is a major part of my role and this can take the form of lectures, classroom sessions or one-to-one tailored sessions.

My training sessions can focus on successful and efficient searching of the library''s online and print collection to locate relevant research material; evaluating retrieved information for academic quality; understanding and avoiding plagiarism and using reference management software including EndNote and RefWorks.

I also select books and other material for the library collection and welcome title suggestions from staff and students.

I''m happy to answer any and all enquiries and can be contacted by email, phone or arrange personal appointments if preferred. Please get in touch if I can help you make the most of what the library has to offer.
