About us

About Us

Our aim is to help all learners make best use of our services to support their work or studies, whether on campus or at a distance. We are also committed to the further development of an inclusive learning environment.

Learning Services incorporates;

  • Library Services – Ormskirk and Manchester
  • Media and ICT support
  • Support for SpLD
  • Academic skills
  • Learning Technology Development (incorporating Blackboard)

These services are provided in Catalyst on the Ormskirk campus and St James, Manchester.

This site will provide you with an introduction to the wealth of resources (both real and virtual) available plus the staff expertise to help maximise these resources.  Whatever your learning preference and need, our staff can provide direction, support, and guidance. We aim to be responsive to both learners’ needs and to the University’s strategic focus and direction.

The development of Edge Hill resources and collections is an integral aspect of our service.

The Collection Development and Management Policy is our statement on the general principles and approach  that underpin the provision of information resources at Edge Hill University.
