Here for you, whenever you need us

The University Library at nightOpen for you 24/7

We are now permanently open 24/7 during term-time, and open until midnight over the summer vacations.  We only close for summer bank holidays and a few days over Christmas and New Year.

All our resources are available anywhere in the world over the internet, so not only can you find a place to study away from home come day and night, you also have a digital library you can carry in your pocket.  Our online chat and phone services also operate round the clock, every day of the year, so you can always get help if something stops working or you need a hand finding information or with referencing.

From search to shelf in one tap

The Library catalogue now offers a 3D floor plan showing where to find each book you look up at the touch of a button, making it quicker and easier for you to find the books you need.  Any problems finding the books you want?  Ask a librarian.  We’re here to help with your every challenge, big or small.

Stress free study

You have enough to think about without worrying about whether your library books need to be renewed. That is why we introduced automated renewals, so that we only charge if another client is waiting for overdue books. We took away the cap on the number of interlibrary loans as well, so you now have access to however much material from other libraries to support your research as you need.
