We’ve made some changes to what we offer so we’re able to give you extra support for your studies during the coronavirus outbreak, whether you’re working from home or if you have an opportunity to come to campus.
If you're thinking of joining us in Autumn 2020 or Spring 2021, here's some info on what to expect.
Long term laptop loans will be available if you don’t have the right equipment at home and you can’t make it onto campus to use our IT facilities.
If you’re working on campus, we’re planning to make a limited number of desktop computers available for you to book in the Sheppard Library.
We’re looking into safe ways to make study space available on campus for staff and students in the Autumn term. This could include spaces in the Sheppard Library that you can reserve with a booking system.
We’re providing a full library service remotely however the library building is currently closed.
This service includes free access to our big collection of online ebooks and journal articles, wherever and whenever you choose. You can also join virtual training sessions and get one to one appointments to support with your learning.
We’ve worked with your academics to make sure that key library materials on your reading list are available online as ebooks.
We’re also looking into how we can support borrowing and return of physical books for example with a system for reservations and collection.
