Library Collection

Our library collection has been developed through collaboration with academic staff. We welcome your book orders to ensure the book stock reflects our students’ needs.

When you link to library electronic resources in Moodle or other course documents please select the appropriate link to ensure stable off-campus access.

Information literacy tutorials

To support staff in the classroom, we offer tailor-made user education and information literacy tutorials. As our electronic resources are constantly changing we also meet staff for one to one appointments to keep you abreast of developments.

Research

Staff carrying out research are encouraged to make good use of our Document Supply Service
