Welcome to your Library!

The University Library and its staff are here to support your studies, providing you with access to information – online, multimedia or printed – and the skills to make the most of it. 

Your University Library is much more than books. It offers places to study, a café and access to a range of support services. You can also access a wide range of e-books and electronic resources online, from the comfort of your own room.

With Covid-19, there are some changes to how you will use the Library and its services during 2020-2021. You will still be able to access the material you need, and all our support services, including your Academic Liaison Librarian, Study Advisers and Maths Support team, will offer a virtual service. For the most up to date information, please check out the Current Library services guide, and the other pages in this guide.
