Library+ is for study and learning.
For the wellbeing of everyone, please...
1. Show respect for the Library and Library users.
2. Keep noise to a minimum in all areas, and silent in silent areas.
3. Consume only bottled water. Food is not allowed.
4. Switch mobile phones to silent.
5. Comply with all instructions from staff. Failure to do so may result in further action.
Your student ID card is also your library card. You must have it with you to borrow items from the library.
You can borrow up to 6 items at a time (higher education students can borrow 8).
Most items can be borrowed for 2 weeks, but reference items cannot be taken out of the library.
If you need to borrow an item for more than 2 weeks, you may be able to renew it. Ask a member of staff at the library counter.
2 week loans can be renewed twice, but shorter loan items cannot be renewed.
If someone else has already reserved an item that you have on loan, you will not be able to renew it and will have to return it when it is due.
If you want an item that is out on loan to someone else, you can reserve it free of charge. Just ask a member of staff.
We are also happy to transfer books between libraries, if you want something that is available at another campus.
Please return your books on or before the due date to any library counter at any campus.
If the library is closed then at most campuses you can leave items in the book return box outside the library, but these will not be returned until the library is next open.
It is your responsibility to make sure that you return items on time. Fines will be charged on overdue items.
Fines are charged for overdue items, as follows:
- 2 week loans 5p per day.
- 1 week loans 5p per day.
- Overnight loans 30p for the first day and 50p for the following days.
- Same day loans 20p per half hour.
Fines are not charged at weekends and during holidays. The maximum fine for each overdue item is £3.
If you lose or damage an item, or if it is stolen, the full replacement cost will be charged.

The library has professional librarians dedicated to supporting particular curriculum areas. These Curriculum School Librarians are responsible for developing and maintaining library collections and resources and can offer support and guidance to students studying particular topics.
Find out who your Curriculum School Librarian is, along with a list of recommended websites and databases, HERE.
Take a look at our tutorials, developed by Library staff, that provide guidance on how to find, evaluate and use information in your assignments and how to behave safely and responsibly onlineHERE.
All students are given £5 credit for printing and photocopying each term.
Credits are deducted from your account every time you print or photocopy. One side of a black and white page costs approximately 1p and a colour page costs approximately 5p.
If you run out of credit you can buy more from the Library counter. As your print balance is reset after Christmas and Easter, we advise that you buy only enough credit to last you until then. Please be aware that credit cannot be carried over to the next term.
From your college desktop, open Chrome App Launcher and select Gmail.
