The library endeavours to provide electronic access to resources wherever possible to ease off-campus and out-of-hours access. There are lots of LibGuides available to give you guidance on the resources for your subject and tell you how you can contact your Information Librarian. They are packed with useful information and tips, so check out the LibGuides relevant to your studies.

Your Information Librarian can help you to find resources for your studies and explain how to use ebooks and other electronic resources. There is an Information Librarian for each school - find out who your Information Librarian is and say hello!

Final year students, postgraduates, staff or 2nd year students working on their dissertation can request items not available in the library via the inter-library loans service. Electronic items supplied by this service will have optical character recognition (OCR) as standard, as will any material digitised by the library for your unit reading list.

There are also many self-help options available online and accessibility tools and plug-ins for browsers e.g. Chrome or Firefox. Please note: The use of free online tools is solely at your own discretion and the installation of anti-virus software is recommended before downloading free or open source software or plug-ins.
