Welcome to new PhD students

A new academic year begins and its time to welcome new PhD students. We hope you enjoy your time here at Leicester. 

The Library is here to help throughout your research. Our homepage and search can be found here. Please visit our Getting Started pages for all you need to know about using the Library. 

There are two librarians who support research students: Selina Lock for Science, Technology and Medicine, and William Farrell for Social Sciences, Arts & Humanities. 

We are here to help you:

  • find information for your research
  • plan literature searches and systematic reviews 
  • get to grips with our resources and databases
  • use bibliographic software to organise your references
  • use referencing styles when writing your thesis. 

The Library also provides a dedicated study space for you: the Nicholas Corah Graduate Reading Room on the first floor of the library. 

We offer 1-2-1 appointments, if you would like in-depth advice. Just email us: librarians@le.ac.uk or telephone 0116 252 2016. 

Distance learners can talk to us via Skype. We also run training workshops throughout the year. These can be booked via PROSE.

If you missed your department's library induction there will be two events run by us to introduce the Library and our services. These will be:

  • 12 October, 10am - 11:30am. Library Seminar Rooms. 1st floor. 
  •  20 October, 10am - 11:30am. Library Seminar Rooms. 1st floor. 

No need to book and just turn up on the day. We look forward to meeting you. Good luck with your research!
