Our one-to-one support offers students practical guidance in developing insights and practices that will contribute to their success at Queen Mary.

We offer individual support for students in a variety of formats — in person and online (depending on the availability of our staff) — on issues including:

  • How to find material through Library Search
  • Identify suitable databases for specific topics, and how to use them
  • Identify high quality resources
  • Referencing
  • Reference Management Software (Endnote, Mendeley)
  • Critical reviews/appraisals
  • Systematic reviews (SMD and HSS)

If you are a Medicine and Dentistry student, please come along to our drop-in sessions.

If you are Humanities and Social Science student or a Science and Engineering student please make your appointment in our booking system. Please make sure to choose a member of staff for your own faculty.

Our one-to-one support is centring around you and your questions.

The medical libraries are currently running drop-in Literature Search Skills sessions online on Wednesday afternoons between 2pm and 4pm.

These sessions are open to anyone wishing to improve their information skills including all Queen Mary staff and students in the healthcare professions.

There is no need to sign up for these sessions, just join the online session between 2pm and 4pm. If there are already people in the room, please keep yourself muted and post in the chat what we can help you with. We’ll be with you as soon as we can.

If Wednesday afternoons are not convenient for you it is of course still possible to request a one-to-one training session via MS Teams.

[The trainer] was so lovely and I felt that she really wanted to help. I am now much more confident and able to progress with my coursework.
