Who's Your Research or Branch Librarian ?

A major responsibility of the Research and Branch Librarian at the University of Adelaide is to liaise with academic staff, researchers and students to make the most effective use of library resources and services.

They also have an important role in working with academic staff to develop information research skills (information literacy) to meet the needs of students and the curriculum in achieving University of Adelaide graduate attributes.

For information on resources and services supporting research, see our Research support guide. For information on how research librarians support teaching, see our Teaching Support guide.

Postgraduate research students should talk to their Research or Branch Librarian as early as possible; we can help you with preliminary work to define your thesis topic and advise you about searching for information in online and print sources.
