Using the Library

In the academic year 2020/21 many changes are being made aimed at ensuring students and staff stay safe and well and are not hurt by Covid-19.

Access to the campus will be limited to certain numbers each day. Most work will be online.

If you are invited to attend campus you will be able to make a booking to visit the Library in order to study or browse the shelves.

If you want to borrow books or access Library documents, you can make requests online or use our Click and Collect Service via the Library App.

We will help you with queries online, by phone, through one to one consultations and via our Help Desk in the Library.
