Library investments

The University has invested over £450,000 in its libraries and respective resources. Our students have given us some brilliant feedback and because of this the University and library have been able to introduce improvements.

Extended opening hours

In partnership with your Union of Students, we've introduced 24/7 opening hours at the Kedleston Road Library and extended hours at the Devonshire Library during peak assessment periods.

Book Reservations

Our University libraries automatically purchase additional copies of books that have had 5 or more reservations, meaning students get the books they need quicker.

New resources

We've invested an additional £300,000 in resources this year, giving students access to even more databases and journals online. This includes JSTOR and SCOPUS.
