I’m the Librarian for LJMU English and I look forward to meeting many of you during your time here. I’m here for you for help and support with any of your library enquiries throughout your course. I can help you with things like finding books, navigating your way round the electronic resources, tracing a particular reference, finding journal articles, how to construct an effective search, using databases, referencing, and how to connect to our online services from campus.
I’m an English graduate myself; although it was a long time ago, I still remember those daunting reading lists, and turning up at seminars with so many partially read books, with the intention of doing all my talking in the early part of the session, before discussion moved onto the later part of the novel (I do NOT, of course, recommend this strategy)! I never learned to use the library properly though until I did my post-grad Librarianship course, so hopefully I can help you get to grips with the mysteries of the library world sooner than I did.
If you’re in the library and you have a question about finding information on your subject, feel free to ask for me, either at the library reception desk on the ground floor, or the Help Desk on the first floor; if I’m around, I’ll come and see you straight away. Alternatively, you can e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call me at 0151-231 3104
I’m happy to arrange an appointment with you for your more in-depth enquiries at a time to suit you.
Good luck with your studies, and have a great time in Liverpool!
