Academic Skills Hub


Need some personalised help? You’re welcome to visit our Academic Skills Hub, which is open from 10-12 and 2-4, Monday through Friday, in the James Hardiman Library foyer. If you could use one-on-one assistance with issues including figuring out library databases, search techniques, getting started with your research, basic citation help, or figuring out your reading list, then be sure to drop by. If our skills assistants are unable to help, you may be able to make an appointment with an academic skills librarian; and for writing queries, the Zone has a direct link with the Academic Writing Centre.
