Library services while you’re away from campus

We know that many of you are studying and working away from campus in line with Government and University guidance in response to the national lockdown. We are still here to provide you with the information resources and support to help you study and research.  

E-books  

Since March 2020 we have purchased over 70,000 e-books, so you can now access over 607,450 different titles via Library SearchE-books are a great way to access the essential reading for your studies and include features that will help you find relevant sections more quickly.  

You can also recommend books for your studies or research. We’re focusing on e-book versions at this time, so let us know if you have a suggestion for a new title or an electronic version of an existing book in print, and we will do our best to purchase it.   

Click and post

The new Click and Post service enables you to request print books for delivery to the UKjust as you would for Click and Collect. Rather than collecting them from the Library, we will post them to where you are studying.  

We will also check if an e-version is available enabling us to give you, and others, faster access.
