Tip 1 - Always remember your ID card
The University Library has barrier access controls. This means you need your ID card for both entry to and exit from the building and to borrow any material from the Library. You can also use it to log in to the printer/photocopiers in the building.
Tip 2 - Find your books
Use our easy to search online catalogue to help to you locate books, articles and other information available in the Library and online. You will find the recommended reading for your modules on our reading list system.
Tip 3 - Borrow your books
Borrow and return books using our self service machines and follow the easy on screen instructions. You will need your University ID card to borrow books but you don’t need it to return them. You can print a receipt but we’ll also email you to confirm the items you have borrowed. Check your account online by logging in to the catalogue. There is lots more information about borrowing on our website.

When you use the Library, there are a wide range of different learning spaces. When you come into the Library, you can decide what is best for you. There are 11 bookable group study rooms of variable sizes distributed throughout the Library, 7 bookable booths located on Level 4, and 20 bookable individual study carrels
