Hello! My name is Matthew Parfitt (He/Him/His) and I'm the Academic Liaison Librarian responsible for Arts and Humanities (English, Creative Writing, Film Studies, Music, Theatre, Games Design) and Education.
I'm here to help you get the most out of the library and its resources, as well as to support you with the research, evaluation, and referencing skills you need to succeed in your studies.
If you need help finding literature, evaluating sources, using the web for research, reading lists, Harvard referencing, or have any questions about the library, then please get in touch.
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.
