Academic Liaison Librarians: Kwabena Amankwah

Getting help from your Academic Liaison Librarian

Each Department is supported by an Academic Liaison Librarian. 

If you're a student, we can help you with:

  • finding your way round the Library;
  • searching for and finding literature for your course work;
  • referencing enquires, including RefWorks.

If you're a member of staff, we can support you by:

  • offering module/course specific information skills sessions;
  • purchasing books and journals for your learning, teaching and research needs;
  • helping you make the most of your library.

LibSmart Help

The LibSmart programme, including the LibSmart Point, is operating a modified service.

If I'm unavailable, Academic Liaison Librarians are available via the LibSmart virtual chat and desk service. 

The LibSmart Point, our drop-in desk, will be available between 1-2pm on weekday afternoons. We can also be reached virtually via the 'LibSmart Chat' tab on the right hand side of the screen. Subject librarians will be online to help:

  • Monday - Friday, 2-4pm (term time)

We can help with finding research, materials and literature for your assignments, advise on how best to use Library resources, give referencing support and help with dissertations and final year projects.

Or you can pick up top tips in our LibSmart workshop sessions. Take a look and book a session on our LibSmart pages

LibSmart Chat

Opening hours

Academic Liaison Librarians are available to chat between 1pm-4pm, Monday to Friday term-time about using library resources and referencing.

You can join us in person at the LibSmart Point desk on the first floor of the Library between 1-2pm on weekdays, and chat to us online via the LibSmart Chat between 2-4pm. 

Occasionally, and outside of these times, your query will be picked up by another member of Brunel Library staff or our friendly co-op support staff, who provide us with 24/7 chat coverage.
