Learning Advocates

Learning advocates final 2000x547

Teaming up with Dr Janette Myers, Senior Lecturer in Student Learning and Support, we facilitate the Learning Adocates scheme. We work with students to help promote Library and study skills related resources. Students have contributed to reviews of books, journals and apps, as well as provided feedback on the development of online resources aimed at students.

Project Search

St George’s Library hosts trainees from the trust’s Project SEARCH programme. Project SEARCH is an international training programme aimed at supporting young people with learning difficulties into paid employment, running at 30+ sites across the UK.

St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has partnered with Cricket Green School and Action on Disability to give young adults with learning difficulties the chance to gain valuable work experience. Our Project SEARCH trainees have developed their skills by preparing induction packs, carrying out admin tasks around new journals and books, and increased their confidence providing support on our main reception desk.

The Library’s RDM Service is working with Jisc and a number of other UK higher education institutions on a pilot service that will enable researchers to easily deposit data for publication, discovery, safe storage, long term archiving and preservation. This service will streamline the deposit and curation of research data, allowing researchers to provide sustainable access to their data for re-use. You can learn more about this ambitious pilot service on the Research data shared service project website.
