Book a 30 minute 1-1 with a librarian

Library users can book a 30 minute 1-1 appointment with a librarian, at all of our libraries (except St Thomas' currently). 

These sessions are designed to help you with database queries, literature searches, and/or general support with navigating our online resources during your time at King's College London or while working for one of our partnered NHS Trusts.

Please note: King's librarians cannot assist with proofreading enquiries.

For support with systematic reviews, library users will need to sign up to one of our fortnightly workshops (details in separate box on this page). King's students and staff can also head to our online forum on KEATs; see the 'Get Help Online with our Forum' box elsewhere on this page. 1-1 appointments are not intended for supporting systematic reviews, other than helping with basics like database search techniques.

Before seeking a 1-1 appointment with a librarian, we encourage all library users to head to our online support channels for their literature search and online resource enquiries. Answers can be found there first, and the 1-1 appointment service is not always available when you may need it. King's students and staff can find in-depth support via our KLaSS elearning module on KEATs; sign-up workshops (see above); the online forum (see above); a Drop-In session (see details elsewhere on this page) or the email or Live Chat options on our Contact Us webpages. KCH and GST staff can find various types of alternative support via the pages on our NHS LibGuide.
