The Library


Welcome to your Nursing subject pages

As your Academic Librarian, I have created these subject pages to help you to access high quality academic and professional resources and information. I also support your studies through:

  • Academic liaison - working with your course and School teams, alongside other academic and university staff, to ensure that the Library provides access to the resources you need.
  • Collection development - selecting, purchasing and developing relevant resources to assist and inform your work.
  • Teaching - delivering cohort inductions and specialist sessions on specific topics (e.g. referencing) at the request of course teams, as well as one-to-one appointments to assist individual students when required.
  • Research support – assisting staff and research students to make the best use of available sources of information.


Research Support

A range of support for researchers is available from the Library, including advice on information sources, open access publishing, journal rankings and metrics, and unique digital identifiers such as ORCiD.

Once you have explored the general information on these subject pages and the Library's Research page, please contact your Academic Librarian if you would like to book a one-to-one appointment to discuss the information aspects of your PhD, master's thesis or other piece of independent research.
