REMINDER: How to get the library resources you need

Online library resources

Although the libraries are currently closed, the University’s extensive online collections remain fully available and can easily be searched and accessed via the library website.

Accessing resources online

We have been working closely with publishers and colleagues across the sector to provide temporary access to a wide range of online resources, in addition to the existing 900,000 e-books in the catalogue.

We are also supporting requests for additional digital resources via our Get It For Me service if we do not have a digital copy of the item that you need.

Study Skills – KnowHow

Our popular KnowHow study skills programme is now being fully delivered online. The team have put together a series of resources that are full of useful advice on preparing for online assessments as well as our Top 10 Revision Tips.

Join our regular online webinars for advice on answering essay questions, Harvard referencing tips and help preparing for assessments. You can also join our new online KnowHow Study Group on Microsoft Teams to share tips and get support from library staff and peers using the code 9kvb1z7.

As always, there are online tutorials available 24/7 through the VITAL module KnowHow: Academic Success. These include topics such as, writing your dissertation, working with statistics, managing your time effectively and finding information for your assignments.

Subject support

Specialist subject support is available from the liaison librarian for your subject. Contact them for help finding and accessing the resources you need; advice on referencing and online support for your learning.

We also have reading lists available on the library website containing resources specific to your subject or module of study.

We’re here for you 24/7

We have recently joined an online global community of librarians offering support and advice to users of academic libraries 24/7. If you require any support finding or accessing resources, our library online chat service is available to answer your queries at any time of day or night via the chat button on our website.
