  • Ebooks – With access to over 450,000+ ebooks we encourage you to use ebooks and online articles for your assignments. For a reminder on how to access eBooks, watch this short video - remember to always go through the library to access the ebooks you need, going directly to a publisher like Bloomsbury won’t get you access to the ebook.

  • The Library’s Ask Us Knowledge Base contains helpful FAQs - If you can’t find an answer for your query you should submit your question here.
  • All books you have on loan are automatically renewed and will not accrue fines - books can be returned at a later stage when the library resumes a physical service. If you are collecting books, you may return items into the ‘returns bin’ inside the library during Click&Collect times.

Library staff will be available remotely and will be on hand to answer online queries, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions or email
