The Library and the Students' Union created the Library Champions initiative to help students get more from the library.
Your Library Champion works closely with your Academic Support Librarian to represent you. They can order library books for you, raise issues you might be having with the Library, take forward suggestions you think of for improving and developing library services, and make sure you know about new Library services and developments.
"If you need any book for your course, or find that the copies in the library are always booked out, your Library Champion can arrange for more to be ordered. As users of the library, you experience the library in a different way to those that manage it - you can also use your Library Champion to let them know what you think and suggest improvements."
Dr. Rachael Antwis, Lecturer in Global Ecology and Conservation, School of Environment & Life Sciences
"The Library Champion initiative allows students and staff to work together to improve the Library service. It's a fantastic way of being able to have your say about the books we have in stock and gives you the opportunity to make suggestions for future library developments. Having a Library Champion also means that you will always be up-to-date with any new library services, and can get the most out of your library!"
Tracy Breheny, Academic Support Librarian
If your School Rep has not yet been appointed, you can still recommend resources for the Library to purchase, and make suggestions and get information about the Library by contacting your dedicated Academic Support Librarian.
