Student to student support – meet the Student Advisor Team!

We’d like to give a warm welcome to our new team of Student Advisors: David, Hannah, Rachel, Declan and Sophie.

The Student Advisors are based at the Ask Desk on the first floor of the University Library, and they are here to support you! The team provide flexible support to new and current students around the Library and wider campus (look out for the purple t-shirts!). From brief queries about printing to more in-depth support around finding resources for your assignment, the team are available at the Ask Desk Monday to Friday, 11am – 4pm.

All third year or postgraduate students, David, Hannah, Rachel, Declan and Sophie have brought with them their subject knowledge from their individual disciplines together with a wealth of experience from studying at Edge Hill themselves, using that to help all students in a variety of ways…

Come and speak to them for advice including:

  • Searching the Library Catalogue and Discover More
  • Using eResources for your subject
  • Locating books
  • Navigating Learning Edge and your My Library Tab
  • Accessing UniSkills academic support
  • Turnitin assistance
  • General IT queries
  • Printing, scanning and photocopying queries

So bring your questions to your Student Advisors at the Ask Desk or stop them on their travels around campus, it’s peer-to-peer support – they’re here to support you.

Getting to know your library…

The team will be offering student-led library tours daily until Wednesday 27th Sept (10am-4pm). (This is by far the best way to get to know the library, hearing from the people that know it best!) If you’re more of a night-owl, why not come to one of the Twilight tours running in the evening on 3rd and 5th October 6-8pm?

In addition this year, the Student Advisor team will be running drop-in sessions as part of Learning Services’ wide-ranging UniSkills workshop programme.

The drop-ins will cover the basics of finding your way round Learning Edge, accessing library resources and using UniSkills academic support to enhance your study skills!

If you can’t make the times, don’t forget you can find the Student Advisor team at the Ask Desk (1st floor, University Library) from 11am-4pm weekdays.
