Our service

The Learning Development Team provides the Skills@Library service for taught students at the University of Leeds. Based in Laidlaw Library, the team offers a range of ways to improve academic skills: through online resources, workshops and one to one support. The service operates throughout the academic year.

The support topics cover a full range of academic skills, including writing essays, delivering presentations, revision, critical thinking, academic writing, note taking, maths and searching for the right information.
