Library & Research Support

Divisions in Education and Student Experience


The library is a division of Education and Student Experience and includes two groups of staff and services:

Library and Research Support: LRS is a member of Research Libraries UK and, with the launch of the Forum, has a confident future developing learning opportunities and enabling research. Library teams are responsible for:

  • Academic Engagement
  • E-Strategy and Resource Development
  • Heritage Collections
  • Library Customer Services

Arts and Culture Services: Arts and Culture teams are responsible for University's arts programmes and activities for students, staff and the public in support of education and research. Arts & Culture has a clear vision for the future with a vibrant cultural offer celebrating our research and involving our students.

Library & Culture Services’ teams are complementary, focusing on the University’s learning and research, with responsibility for collections, spaces and support for students and researchers.
