We benefit from a high-quality library service, allowing the learning community to enjoy cost-effective information and learning resource services through a range of media.

Books on a beach

If you want to take your books down to the beach, you can. (Just try not to get salt water on the pages, please!) Our Library Guide explains all you need to know about the services and resources we provide, including how to borrow library books. You’ll also find out how to access our online Library, which provides you with 24/7 access to many thousands of eBooks, journal and magazine articles, digital maps, British Standards, reports, study guides, reference management tools and much more.
