The library has a large print collection of both loanable and reference books available in all library sites.
Our guide to borrowing page provides information on how many books you may borrow and for how long.
You can use StarPlus, the library catalogue to search our print collections and find out where they are located. Use this guide to help you find books on the shelf.
If there is a book we don’t have that you think we should buy you can recommended a book here.
The library also provides online reading lists for your modules/courses called reading lists, These lists contain links to electronic resources such as full-text journal articles, ebooks and databases in addition to items physically held in the library. All you have to do is enter your module code or the name of your course.
If the book you need is on loan you can request it and collect at the library site that suits you best.
There are self issue machines available at all libraries should you wish to issue any material to your library account.
If we have a print copy of a book that is loanable you can click 'request' on the StarPlus record for the book to reserve a copy. We will then email to let you know when the book is available for you to collect.
If you are a distance (online) learning, part-time or commuter student, a student on placement or have registered with the Disability and Dyslexia Support Service you may be able to get longer loans and postal loans.
If you receive Disabled Students Allowance you can reclaim your photocopying and printing costs.
Paper in various colours is available for those who find copying and printing on coloured paper helpful. Please ask what paper is available at any of the library counters.
We also provide a free scanning service called myDocuments. Articles from print journals or chapters from books held by the library (providing that they do not exceed 30 pages) can be scanned and delivered to your desktop. Alternatively, a photocopy of the required item can be posted to you.
If there is a book you need that we don’t have in the library then you can request it through our interlibrary request service.
If you would like to access other University libraries in the UK you can join the SCONUL access scheme. This service might be particularly useful if you are a distance (online) learning, part-time or commuter student.
