Book a Librarian

Our campus libraries are now open to students and we are offering online appointments using MS Teams via your Office 365 ARU student account. You may also choose to see a subject librarian on campus.

Please book using the form below and select either an online appointment or which campus you would like to attend for an appointment in person.
If you have already started your research and need additional guidance in finding and using information resources, you can book a 30 minute appointment with your subject librarian either online or on campus.

Our subject librarians will want to know what research you have done before booking your appointment, so please tell us on the booking form so we can be prepared to help you when you arrive for your appointment. You can cancel your appointment by clicking on the link in your confirmation email.

The booking confirmation and reminder is sent to your ARU email address. If you can't keep the appointment, please cancel in good time.

You are only allowed one booking per day.

If there isn’t a suitable appointment, our subject librarians are also offering support by email.
