"Teaching is about creating those moments where the world suddenly makes a little bit more sense."

Library teaching and learning support

UCL Library Services provide access to thousands of journals, books and digital resources, searchable online. They can provide advice, help to identify resources to support teaching and provide guidance on how to integrate them into teaching. This includes advice on all issues relating to copyright.

The Library’s Teaching and Learning Support Section (TLSS) supports UCL’s online reading list system currently being piloted with staff – readinglists@ucl. This integrates with Moodle and allows individuals to create and maintain online versions of their reading lists with links to all available digital resources, including digitised course readings.

Each subject area has a named representative who can answer questions regarding their services and work with academic colleagues to ensure students are benefitting from the full range of library resources.

UCL Special Collections is one of the foremost university collections of manuscripts, archives and rare books in the UK, and includes the George Orwell archive. Special Collections staff are able to advise on how these materials can be used to support teaching and learning.
