Facilities at campus libraries include quiet, silent and collaborative study spaces, copiers, charging points and self issue kiosks. Some of our campus libraries also allow you to loan out laptops and this scheme will be expanding to more campus libraries soon.
An award winning team
Our highly qualified librarians and other dedicated members of the Library Service work tirelessly to improve the educational journey of all of our students. Their ability to help students locate resources to meet tight deadlines, sits alongside a warmth and kindness which is hugely appreciated by students.
So much so that our students recognised the Library Service with an award in 2018 - the Student Association's President’s Special Recognition Award.
You will get an opportunity to meet your library team during your induction and each library has its own programme of workshops and face-to-face training to support you in your studies. You can access our Library portal and explore how you can develop your digital skills through the Digital Academy.
