Teaching Support Library Services

Library services for Teaching Staff

The library can support your programme right from the approval stages.  Your School's Information Specialist can work with you to ensure relevant resources are available and that students are developing the skills they need to find, evaluate and use information in their studies.  We can help you to set up an online reading list and purchase materials for the library.


Information Specialists

We are academic librarians who work in partnership with Faculties, Schools and Programme teams to deliver information services in support of teaching and learning.  Each Information Specialist has responsibility for working with a group of subject areas at both strategic and operational level, reflecting the importance of information as one of the University’s most crucial assets and information literacy as a key attribute for employability in the 21st century.  Information Specialists apply their knowledge and expertise in information management in a wide academic context – selecting and organising material for library collections (both physical and electronic), facilitating the use of information management tools and supporting the ongoing development of information literacy skills.

We are based in the Charles Seale-Hayne Library.  There is a generic email address informationspecialists@plymouth.ac.uk or find your information specialist on the Subject Support page below.
