The Student Texts Collection is a collection
of Library materials in heavy demand or defined as
essential course reading, usually recommended by
academic staff, and is located on Level 2 in
the Robinson Library.

- Monday - Thursday after 6pm
- Friday after 5pm

You may book a maximum of 2 items.

There is an immediate overdue charge of £1.00 plus £1.00 per hour or part hour after that. Items from this collection cannot be renewed.
Self issue/self return
There is a self-service unit in the STC so you can checkout your own books (either STC or General loans).
Please remember to take the receipt from the machine which shows the date and time the book is due back.
All STC books should be returned on the unit in the STC (not on other self-service units in the Library)
Books are shelved in number order in the same way as the books on the subject floors.
Photocopies of recommended journal articles or chapters from books are located in the STC. Loan periods as above. Check Library Search for details.
Other articles copied through the CLA scanning licence will be available from your Blackboard module pages or the Reading Lists Online service.
Some Lecture notes and tutor's notes may be held in the STC. Shelved at the end of the book sequence.
We have a collection of films in the STC. See Library Search for titles in stock. DVD equipment is available in the Media Room on Level 4 to view the films.
Review of collection
This collection is reviewed each summer and items that have not been in demand or no longer on a reading list will usually revert back to normal lending copies on the subject floors. Liaison Librarians will contact departments as part of this annual review process.
