Top 10 Library Tips
Top 10 Library Tips
If you need help using the Library, please go to the Welcome Desk on Level 2.
1 - Your campus card is also your Library card
Once you have your campus card you are automatically a member of the Library, so you can start borrowing books and other items straight away. You need your card to enter and exit the turnstiles on Level 2.
3 - Find your way around the building
The main Library is on 12 floors so to begin with you might find our floor plans useful. There are A-Z lists of subjects and services beside the lifts and stairs to help you find your way.
The University uses AccessAble to provide an online description of the physical access features of over 80 university services and buildings, including the Library.
4 - Finding books and journal articles you need
5 - Borrowing and returning books
To borrow, renew and return books, use the Self-Service Kiosks on Level 2 and throughout the building. Staff on level 2 can help you with any enquiries you have about the items you have borrowed. Remember, if you don't return your items on time, you can incur fines and charges.
6 - Accessing e-resources
Most of our e-resources are available both on and off campus. You need your GUID to access them. More information and help is available: Accessing e-resources.
7 - Help and support in your subject area
Use our Subject Help pages for all the online help you need for your studies.
8 - Printing/WiFi/Laptop Loans
There are MFDs (Multi-Functional Devices) throughout the Library. You can use these to scan, print and photocopy. This is done by simply swiping your card over the ‘Pull Print’ logo on the printers, then selecting either Print, Scan or Copy. You will need to purchase print credits before you can print.
The Library also has laptops available for 4 hour loan periods, on Level 3.
9 - Group Study
