Library

Looking for ebooks?

We are in the process of updating some of our ebook links and so some may not be working from your reading lists - if this happens please search for the book on our ebook platform.

Library Services

Our on-campus libraries will reopen in September for the start of the new 2020/21 academic year. During the summer we are offering an extensive digital service. Visit our Library LibGuide for the latest updates as well as help with accessing online resources, details of online study skills and more.

When our physical Library services reopen we will provide access to bookable study spaces and computers, as well as managed access to browse and loan printed learning resources. This will help us to manage the numbers of people using our Library spaces at any one time. This new blended approach will provide an on-campus Library access alongside the use of our extensive digital collection of e-books and online resources to support your learning and research.

Help and guidance is available throughout the year from our friendly and knowledgeable team, as part of a Library service designed to support you in your studies.
