Information Services Primary Contacts

Information Services Primary Contacts (ISPCs) are members of academic staff who act as liaison between academic Schools and Information Services. Responsibilities include:

  • advising on the information services and resources required to support learning, teaching and research in their School/Institute
  • approving book recommendations for non-reading list books i.e. for wider reading or for research
  • helping ensure Information Services receive reading lists to help us build collections which support courses
  • facilitating a two way flow of communication between the School and Information Services including keeping Information Services updated with developments in the School.

Your ISPC is one route to feed your ideas, suggestions and feedback back to Information Services. You can also give feedback via your Liaison Librarian or our feedback form.  

For Library or IT enquiries please contact IShelp@hw.ac.uk or use the helpdesk tile on the portal.
