Library resources

The Library has an important role to play in supporting your teaching and research by providing access to all relevant services.

We want to take an active role in helping you and enhancing the university academic programmes by delivering resources and services which will be essential to you and your students. We also aim to offer guidance and advice to support your research priorities through the provision of a range of tailored and specialised services.
