They can meet with students and staff on a one-to-one basis as well as provide support by phone, email and Skype. See their individual contact details on the faculty Academic Services pages, or contact the whole team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Research Bites are short, informal sessions aimed at the research community at Lancaster University, which includes postgraduates, research students and staff. The aim is to deliver useful information, start discussions and answer questions for the benefit of anyone conducting research at Lancaster University.
Research Bites has been initiated by the Library, and our colleagues across the University are involved in suggesting topics and delivering sessions. For more information see our Research Bites blog, or for upcoming sessions see our Events Calendar page.
We can provide assistance on Resource Lists by phone or email. If you are new to Resource Lists we are happy to visit you at your department to get you started on the system.
EndNote is the officially supported Reference Management tool at Lancaster. Please see our EndNote support pages for help, FAQs, connection files and more.
