Welcome to Library & Learning Resources. We're really glad you found us! We know there's a lot of overwhelming information to absorb, but learning how to use the library can be rewarding and we're at every step to give you the help you need.


Getting your ID card and library PIN

Once you've enrolled and received your ID card, you are automatically a member of the library. Your ID card is also your library card. Make sure you bring it with you every time you visit campus!

We will email you a PIN for borrowing books shortly after your ID card is printed.


Can I change my library PIN?


Click "get library PIN" on our website or visit the library Helpdesk.


How do I look for books and journal articles?

To start with, a good place will be your module reading list. You will also find links to your reading list on Moodle and our website.

Use the catalogues in the library to search for books, DVDs and sheet music on campus. The library website has a single search box for books, journals, newspaper articles and more! If you're looking for something else, like legal cases, company information or research databases, use the A-Z of Databases link on our website.
