The library provides over 4,000 e-books and 15,000 academic e-journals in addition to print books, journals, music scores, CDs and DVDs.
Other facilities include wi-fi access, vending machines, computers and bookable work spaces. Copiers, printers and scanners are on hand.
In our libraries
When you want to work in the Library, you can select a study area that suits your needs. If you want to work in peace, there are silent study areas where we ask people not to talk or use equipment that might disturb others.
At other times, you’ll need to work on group projects, so we’ve set aside areas where you can talk, use mobiles, eat and drink.
Where possible, key texts are available in e-format to ensure you have 24/7 access. In addition, we have a large range of physical stock across our three libraries including books, DVDs, CDs and music scores.
The inter-library loan service allows you to access material held by other libraries and deliver it to your home campus.
Whether it is electronic or physical, all of our available material is listed on the library catalogue, our web pages or on Minerva.
Each subject has a devoted Subject Librarian who purchases the materials for your course, provides research and information literacy sessions and tutorial support. They are available to help you with any of your information seeking needs.
Digital Literacy Librarian
Our Digital Literacy Librarian provides a suite of bespoke sessions designed to give you the digital skills you’ll need to succeed at university and beyond.
Open Access IT facilities
The Library provides several hundred networked computers (both Windows and Apple Macs) that you can use. You’ll find many of these within our libraries, as well as in other study locations.
For instance, on Newton Park campus there are open access IT facilities in the computer rooms on the first floor of the Library, as well as in Commons, in the Learning Commons and the Digital Literacy suite.
All of our computers include word-processing, email and access to the internet. Some also have additional programmes such as Adobe Creative Suite.
