More enhancements to learning resources

  • Borrowing items from the library has been made easier and fairer

    Loan periods have been simplified so most items are seven or three day loans. They will never be due at weekends.

    Items you’ve borrowed will be automatically renewed, unless someone else reserves them.

    You can now borrow up to 40 items, including journals and multimedia.

  • Ongoing investment in books and resources

    Over £4m* is spent annually on course-specific books, e-books, journals and e-resources. There are over 1m books and journals and over 1.1m e-resources available. Our special collections and archives are being expanded as a rich and relevant aid to study and research. (*17/18 SCONUL)

  • New and improved LibrarySearch

    It is now easier for you to search the library catalogue on your phone.

  • Laptop borrowing service

    You can borrow laptops from both the Templeman Library and the Drill Hall Library.
