Biological Sciences Libraries

Getting Started

Training sessions for Biological Sciences Students and Researchers 

There are many different ways in which a student will find themselves having to work and study while at university. From experiencing lectures for the first time to carrying out a research project for a final year dissertation, there can be a lot to get to grips with. Thankfully the Biological Sciences Libraries Team are here to work with you throughout your time at Cambridge and we have a dedicated programme of training to help get you up to speed.


We have divided our programme into types of training: Core Skills and Advanced Skills. 



Core Skills are the sorts of things that are core to helping you manage the first few years of an undergraduate degree. Anyone who may be coming back to studying after some time away can also benefit from these resources regardless of your degree level.







Advanced Skills build on the fundamentals laid down in our Core Skills sessions and help you push your knowledge further as you move through your degree towards more in-depth study.

All of our sessions are supported by bookable 1-2-1 supervisions with a member of the Team so if you ever need to discuss anything in more detail, we are here to help.
