Post graduate researcher? Find out more about the library services for you:

Access resources wherever you are

If you are based away from the University, you can still use the library’s resources. All of our electronic resources are available off campus. Please use the links to individual e-books and e-journals on the library catalogue or use the Electronic Library to search our databases.

You can also use the postal loan service to have books and photocopies sent to you (please note there is a charge for this service).

PGR study spaces on campus

The library has a wide variety of study space available to suit all our users’ needs. This includes group space, silent study rooms, bookable spaces, individual study desks, flexible study space and assistive technology rooms.

Bookable PGR study desks in Research Commons

These are 36 large desks with associated lockers, which can be booked by postgraduate research students from any college. Book a desk in advance – desks can be booked for 1 day or for up to 5 consecutive days.

Subject Librarians

Your subject librarian can help! We offer a deskside training service to all staff and research postgraduates. Let us know what you need help with (finding resources, managing references, using the institutional repository…) and we’ll arrange a convenient time. We will come to your office, or if you prefer, you can come to one of the libraries.
