New library catalogue

We would like to say a big hello to our brand new library catalogue.  We launched our catalogue in June after a period of almost 12 months planning and testing.

We hope you like the many new features, here’s some information about what’s new:

  • A powerful search tool for all print and electronic resources resulting in more resources at your fingertips
  • Seamless access to your library account from within the VLE so no need to leave the Blackboard environment to view your checked out items
  • Fairer fines for all and an automatic book renewal service – the library will renew items for you so you can get on with other things, fines will only be charged on items reserved by other borrowers

The new catalogue is just part of a suite of changes you will see  but if you have any questions or you can’t find what you need in the catalogue or our tool ‘Discover More please tell us so we can help you and improve the catalogue.

Please take a look at the on-line  Ask us service for help, support and ways to get in touch
