New library and IT website

11 September 2013

This summer, we've created a new Library and IT site for you.

To complement the recent developments to our library and IT spaces, we've now launched a new Library and IT website.

To help you find what you need easily, as well as to highlight key resources, training opportunities and more, we've re-organised and streamlined all of our online content.

Explore the new site and make it a regular port of call – we'll be updating and adding new content to it throughout the year.

Library opening hours

Today's library opening hours are now displayed on our Library and IT homepage.

To see the whole week's and semester's opening hours, check our individual library pages.

News and events

All the latest library and IT news will be published on the new homepage, along with the latest edition of our newsletter, Books & Bytes. You'll also find our latest Tweets by clicking on the 'Connect' tab.

Academic Liaison Librarians - subject-specific support

All our courses and subjects have dedicated library resources support in the form of our Academic Liaison Librarians.

Visit our Academic Liaison Librarians webpage to find the contact details of your librarian, as well as links to their social media channels, useful resources for your subject, and more.

If you're about to start an assignment and need help finding appropriate research materials, your Academic Liaison Librarian can help.

Help with your assignments

Before embarking on your first written assignment, read through our guidance on Referencing your work.

Also have a look at our tips on researching your assigments, which cover everything from understanding essay titles to using the right keywords in your online searches.

Finding computers and printers

If you're looking for a computer to work on, check where our computer rooms are located. You'll also find printers, copiers and scanners at each campus.

We're updating our printing service at the moment, and the locations of our new payment kiosks will soon be available on our Computer rooms page.
