These materials support the breakout session from the Together23 Library Conference. 

The Library's Student Team intend to use their unique position as staff and students of varying courses to create a safe space where they, and attendees, can think about and feel a sense of belonging. This session will enhance the voices of our students who will consider the barriers to feeling like they belong at university. This will encourage reflection from attendees who may unknowingly contribute to students’ feelings of isolation and create a space to listen to the student experience shared by students themselves.
