Mark Ridolfo, BU academic


We provide support for teaching with resources and study skills support, and at every stage of the research cycle.


The library team are an absolute jewel at BU. They work hard to ensure they offer bespoke, specialist and high quality support for our research students across a wide range of topics. Support spans: ensuring originality in research and avoiding plagiarism, reference management, conducting literature searches, and data management practices. 

The team are always on hand to offer one-to-one support for researchers, they are super friendly and have a wealth of knowledge. As a PhD student myself, I can't emphasis enough how wonderful this team are.
