The Library welcomes and supports all Lifelong Learning students. If you have any questions at all about the Library, whether you're an experienced library user or it's your first time using a university library, please do not hesitate to ask. You can email the Academic Liaison Librarian for Lifelong Learning, or ask any member of staff in the Library. We're all here to help!
We'll always try to get books in an electronic format, even more so when we know students can't always make it to campus to borrow our printed books. Sometimes, though, we can't get an e-book - perhaps the publisher doesn't offer that option, for example.
But don't despair! You can still access the full range of our printed book collections using our Postal Loans service. We'll send the book to your home address and you can use it as your normally would, then pop it back in the post to us when you're done.
We'll take the return date as the date of postage so you don't need to worry about the time spent in the postal service, but remember that Postal Loans can still be recalled by other Library users.
We have a brand new Reading Lists system that we've introduced over the summer.
You can access your lists via your VLE module pages. If you have any questions about how to use the new system, see our FAQs for students.
