Research Week is drawing to a close for another year. So it seems like a good time to highlight ways in which the CPIT Library supports research.
All staff who work at the Library’s Information Desk are able to provide general research support including assisting with database searches and taking interloan requests.
For more specialist research assitance we have four Liaiason Librarians. They all have post graduate qualifications and extensive experience in supporting research.
Liaison Librarians assist academic staff with the development of effective search strategies, whether using the library catalogue or online journal databases . They will also help with subject searches, literature reviews and the use of Endnote.
