Here you can find some of our library resources to assist you in finding the information you require, on and off campus.
Exam papers from the last five years are available via the University website, and you can access them both on and off campus.
SOLAR (Search Our Library's Academic Resources) brings together all of the Library's collections and allows them to be accessed from a single interface, regardless of format, type or location.
We have over 320,000 e-Books available. They are available 24/7, allowing you to study anytime, anywhere.
USIR - The University of Salford's Institutional Repository
USIR is an online database, showcasing research that is carried out by researchers at the University of Salford
Reading List items via LaSU
Module reading lists are compiled by your tutor, and they are available through a system called LaSU (Lists at Salford University).
The Library keeps Offprints, which are digitized or print copies of articles and book chapters on module reading lists, which are not otherwise held in stock.
We've teamed up with Dawson Books/Bertrams so you can now buy your books through The Library, with free next working day delivery and the option of choosing to collect from a library site or have your books delivered at home.
Short Loan Collection
The SLC is a collection of our most heavily used books and journal articles, located in the Clifford Whitworth library. Their short loan periods enable more people to access these core text books.
The Library receives a print copy of Doctoral and Masters by Research theses accepted by the University of Salford. You can search the Salford theses collection in the Library Catalogue, by selecting Theses Catalogue from the drop down menu in the Collection search box. Some Salford theses that are available electronically are located in USIR and EThOS. For further information on finding theses, see the guide Finding Theses.
Archives and Special Collections
The University Archives and Special Collections contain many rich resources which support teaching and research.
