Calling all future Library Champions

Posted by cc576 at Oct 05, 2021 03:16 PM |
Be a Champion and volunteer with the Library today!

Now in its third successive year, the Library Champions scheme is a Library initiative to provide students with volunteering experience and opportunity to develop transferable skills through a range of extra-curricular activities, whilst helping shape the overall Library student experience. As a Library Champion volunteer you will get chance to take part in a number of mini projects throughout the academic year according to what you’re interested in – you can find out more about the Library Champion role and some of the projects taking place in semester 1 here.

Here’s what one of our previous Library Champions Amy, said about volunteering with the Library:

"I would highly recommend joining the Library Champions, it has really been a highlight of my second year. The group of people are really friendly and welcoming and it is a great opportunity to interact with more students while also improving the library with a number of interesting projects!"

The scheme will be delivered both on campus and online and all students can apply to be a Library Champion whatever their course or level of study, including postgraduate researchers and distance and remote learners. Applications are now open so please fill in our online application form and apply today!

In the autumn term we will be organising informal sessions and chance for Library Champions to meet with one another; we will let you know further details about this soon. This is a great volunteering opportunity to be able to add valuable skills to your CV to demonstrate to prospective employers, improve the student experience in the Library for your student peers and potentially make new friends at university.

If you do have any questions about volunteering as a Library Champion at all, please e-mail

We welcome your applications.
