You can ask for advice about how to research, including finding resources, writing and referencing.
- Access to resources
You can request an article you need for an assignment if you cannot access it (subject to License agreements).
- Face to face online meetings

You can also get support for finding and referencing information from skilled, knowledgeable Librarians via Library chat or by emailing email@example.com.
