Information about the Library for prospective students and families

What does the Library offer?

The Library provides a huge range of physical and online resources and services to support our students in their studies.

Welcome to the Library

Welcome to the Library!

  • We're unable to welcome visitors to campus right now but the Library remains open to current students and staff, with COVID-secure bookable study spaces, access to PCs and book borrowing.  Our extensive electronic resources, services and support from specialist staff are all available remotely.  The information in this guide represents our Library under normal circumstances. 
  • We have one central campus Library, so books, journals and resources to support all Departments (and all Library staff) are based here. Follow our Virtual Tour.
  • Each Department has a Subject Librarian specialising in the subject area, available to help students to use Library resources effectively.
  • The building is open 24 hours a day all year and the Level 2 Issue Desk enquiry point is open until 7pm in weekdays during semesters.
  • We have extensive electronic resources available to students on or off campus.  This includes over 527,500 online books and over 26,000 online journals.  We also provide students with access and support for over 100 subscription and 100 open access research databases, essential for finding high quality information for your assignments and projects in books, journals and other publications. 
  • Our print collections include over 332,000 books and 219 journal titles.
  • We have study space for more than 1,470 students, zoned into silent, quiet and group study areas. Over 500 of the study spaces have computers, the majority have access to power, and the whole building is wireless enabled.
