Ishbel Leggat

Academic Support Librarian (Education & Sport and Philosophy, Psychology & Language Sciences)

I am a point of contact for staff and students in Moray House School of Education & Sport (MHSES) and the School of Philosophy, Psychology and Language Sciences (PPLS) who require support or have questions about library resources and services.

I am happy to assist staff and students from these Schools individually or in small groups, including help with information literacy skills, getting the best from library resources, how to use literature databases, finding reading material, using referencing management software or advise on any other aspect of the Library's business.

My professional interests, skills & experience include:

  • Information literacy & research skills development
  • Open Access & scholarly publishing
  • Research data management
  • Evidence-based practice (in healthcare & libraries)
  • Bibliographic management training & support (EndNote & RefWorks)
  • Information searching, retrieval, summarising & critical evaluation skills
  • Referencing training & support (APA & Harvard)
  • Online & in-person information skills delivery
  • Administration of institutional repositories (EPrints & DSpace)
