Access a wider collection of knowledge with Scan and Send

Post boxWe'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 Scan and Send service. You can request scans of chapters or articles, as well as postal delivery of books. 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 books sent in the post can still be recalled by other Library users.

Using the Library from a distance

The Library provides a lot of support for students who live and work at a distance from campus. See our web page for distance learners for more details and advice.
