How to access the Library
To keep yourself and others safe:
Our reserve and collect service is now suspended and the library is open for you to browse the shelves and self-issue books. The self-issue machines are located on Level 1 by the entry gates.
All books on loan will now be due on the 15 February 2021. This is to account for the National Lockdown. Please check your library account and contact us if your books have not renewed. You will be unable to recall a book during this time.
Books can be returned by putting them in the red box by the Level 1 entrance. In line with current guidance when returning your books they will be placed in quarantine for 72 hours and then be available for loan.
You can request articles and chapters. We are currently unable to supply Inter Library Loan book requests due to the national lockdown. You can still make article and chapter requests. If you need help accessing alternative resources, please speak to your Information Specialist. Please note that supply times may take longer than usual.
Inter Library Loan books can be returned via the red returns bin located in the Level 1 foyer.
The Library has a vast digital collection of ejournals, ebooks and specialist online resources which can be accessed remotely:
Search Primo: Primo defaults to online full text access for journal articles. To limit your search to online books as well, choose “books and “full text online” from the left hand refine menu. NB: Many Primo links to ebooks provided by Proquest Ebook Central now allow unlimited concurrent access during the Coronavirus period.
For support with Primo, please see the Primo Support Libguide
Academic staff: Please let your Information Specialist know of any key texts that are currently provided in print format. Information Specialists can look to identify alternative resources in digital format, including digital extract scans where available
Library Subject Guides collate the most useful digital resources for each subject including tailored collections of ebooks that allow for deeper searching within the text; legal resources; e-newspapers; e-archives; data resources; and online journal collections.
Do you have a module e-reading list? Many items on module reading lists are available electronically. Search Leganto for your module code.
