Mathieu Lubrun, the library's information skills trainer

We are pleased to report that Mathieu has achieved the status of Fellow of Higher Education Academy and is happy to give training sessions embedded into academic long courses. Mostly these are pre-arranged with your tutors, but if you find that this hasn’t happened, do request that your tutor arranges a session for your group.
