Online and Phone Appointments

Due to Coronavirus developments we are moving from in-person appointments to online and phone appointments until further notice.  

We are using MS Teams to meet online, this application enables us to make voice calls, video calls and screen sharing. Please book your session here as usual and make sure that you are registering with your LSBU Email address. To use MS Teams, all you will need is a computer, reliable internet connection and quiet space at the time of your appointment. After your registration, we will be sending you further instructions to help you get on to MS Teams.  

If you want a phone appointment, please provide your phone number on the registration form, and a librarian will call you at the time of your appointment. 

These sessions are 30 minutes and we can offer advice with:

  • Database Searching e.g. Journal articles 
  • Referencing
  • Using Refworks

If you are unable to make any of the available slots, please email us at and we can see if we can accommodate you.
