Please remember that most of our library resources (databases, eJournals and eBooks) are available via our website 24/7, as are our referencing and research support areas and lots more.

Library services

From 6 September:

  • You will no longer need to pre-book your study seat. You can drop-in to study any time the Library is open.
  • You will be able to book a group study room for up to eight people at a time (masks required).
  • We will no longer offer a click and collect service. You will be able to browse, check-out and return books during any of our opening hours.
  • If you reserve books online via Library Search, we'll email you when they are available for collection. There will be no need to pre-book a slot, just come in when it's convenient to collect and check-out your reservations. 
  • We will continue to post out loans for all staff and students until October 2021. After that time, we will only offer a postal service to part-time and remote learners.
  • As always, the majority of our resources and support are available via the Library website 24/7
