Most modules will have an online reading list. Reading lists often provide links to essential and recommended readings for the module. They can also be a good starting point for finding books and other resources for assignments. Reading lists can be accessed via the relevant module site on Blackboard. Alternatively go to the Reading Lists site directly and search by module code or name.
You can browse the shelves for books to use whilst studying in the Library and take these out using the self-service machines on the ground floor of the Library.
Books can be returned by placing them on one of the clearly labelled trolleys in the Freezone area of the Library. A staff member will collect the books and place them in a quarantine area, where they will remain for 72 hours. After the quarantine period, the books will then be removed from your account.
The books in the Library are organised by the Dewey Decimal System. Each book has a number on the spine called a shelfmark. The first floor has books with numbers from 000-599 (apart from 340-349.99 which are in the Law Library on the third floor) and the second floor has books with numbers from 600-999.
Try browsing the shelves for books on a particular topic.
