Library Drop-Ins

library drop-ins have been cancelled

Book a 30 minute online 1-1 with a librarian

Due to COVID-19, our 1-1 appointments have moved online. They will be taking place on Microsoft Teams for the foreseeable future.

How do I book? You can book by clicking the button below. Once you've made your booking, you will be sent an electronic invitation you can use to access the appointment. We recommend joining with video enabled, for optimal benefit. If you can only join to listen/see us and communicate via chat, please let your librarian know ahead of the appointment.

How do I use Microsoft Teams? MS Teams works with Chrome, IE and Edge browsers, and can be downloaded to both Windows PCs and Macs. More guidance is available here: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/teachlearntech/assets/student-view-of-microsoft-teams.pdf. If you are NHS staff, the good news is that Teams has been made generally available to the NHS – further information can be found here  https://support.nhs.net/.

What are the 1-1s for? These sessions are designed to help with using the library's online resources, databases and literature searching. Please note, we cannot assist with proofreading enquiries. Similarly, 1-1 appointments are not intended for supporting systematic reviews, but we can help with the basics like searching databases effectively, if that's where you're stuck. For more help with sys reviews, King's students and staff can consult with a senior librarian on our 'Advanced Searching for Systematic Reviews' forum on KEATs.

What other help is available? Before seeking a 1-1 appointment, we encourage you to try out our other online support channels. We've designed them with your frequently asked questions and common issues in mind. Information on these channels can be found elsewhere on this page, and you can find out how to contact us via email or Live Chat on our Contact Us webpages for further questions.

Until we see you again, stay safe and healthy!
