Library services: updates
The Library is currently open to Solent students and staff. Please bring your campus card with you to borrow items and to access the Library when the turnstiles are up.
To support students and staff who may wish to continue to work in a bookable, socially distanced area, a limited number of socially distanced computers on Floor 0A of the library will be available for such use. These computers need to be pre-booked via the computer booking system. For information on how to book, see our booking guide. There are also some socially distanced study spaces available on Floor 0A which do not need to be pre-booked but are for individual use only.
Please see the portal for the latest updates on Solent's Covid 19 guidance.
Members of the public wishing to use the Library must apply for a Visitor Pass and receive it before their first visit. Please see the visitors guide for full details about visitor access and to complete the Visitor Pass request form.
Alumni and SCONUL subscribers: please see the Subscribers page for details of how to apply for access or use the relevant link on the left.
