New to University? Sign up for a Library Welcome session
We're running Library Welcome webinars and face-to-face sessions and IT Essentials webinars from mid-September.
They are a great way to get ready for studying at University, so sign-up today.
Study space in the Library
Walk-in access to study and PC spaces is now available in the Library, or if you would like to book a seat prior to your visit we have specific areas in the library which are pre-bookable for study tables, PCs, Macs and study rooms.
If you would like to pre-book, decide what type of study you want to do, and where (these spaces are highlighted in blue on the floor plans), and you will be directed to the correct booking form.
We provide a wide array of high-quality resources to help make your studies a success.
Develop your skills and become a better student.
Archives and Special Collections
We have material relating to the history of the University, from its foundations in 1896 up to the present day.
This rich and diverse resource supports academic research, teaching and learning, while also being of wider interest to local historians, genealogists and anyone with an interest in historical research.
