UG Handbook - Library

The University Library provides a vast array of high quality online resources, books, and spaces to work. Staff are here to help, whether that’s in person at the Help Desk or via email, phone, chat or social media. Find out more about where to start with the Library Essentials guide. This includes information on using the library catalogue, your library account, online induction resources and opening hours. For general help, contact the Library Help Desk.

Your reading list

Your online reading lists are designed to help you get started with reading for your module. Your lecturer might have structured your lists by topic or by week to help you navigate them more easily, and you'll find that items are tagged as essential, recommended or background so that you know which to read first.

The online system provides information about where items are in the Library and it also tells you if books are out on loan. If we have electronic resources they will link directly to the reading so it is really easy for you to access it.
