Using the Library
For track and trace purposes, we are asking all students to sign in at the library help desk to use either a study space or a computer. We now also have 20 new chromebooks available to use while you’re in the library - ask at the helpdesk where we can issue one to you and allocate you a study space.
A big thank you to all you students who have been so brilliant at adapting to all these changes - we know it’s not easy, so well done!
We have a huge amount of online resources that you can use while studying from home including ebooks, magazines, TV programmes, films, research databases, subject guides and more - all accessible on all devices. The Library Moodle page is your one-stop portal to all these amazing resources. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do all we can to help.
