Paul Newnham

Academic Liaison Librarian (Teaching & Learning)

My main area of responsibility is as an academic liaison librarian with the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS). I focus on providing support for using Library resources and teaching information literacy for students at all levels in FASS and encourage queries from departments where I can provide embedded teaching and training.

I also offer one-to-one support for FASS students and staff for a range of library-related issues including help with selecting and using specialist library resources, planning, evaluating and searching for information.

I have taken lead roles in co-ordinating the library induction programme and liaising with Schools and Colleges over the last couple of years.

My other area of responsibility involves helping to organise the library’s frontline service which involves line managing five Information Assistants.

I am a literature graduate with a post graduate qualification in Information and Library Management. I am also an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
