Working in the Library
The Library is a shared working space. You can bring in water in a sports bottle but food and other drinks are prohibited. We ask that you do not hold mobile phone conversations in the library.
Our desks and casual carrels are available on a first come, first served basis, though you may leave a small tidy pile of books with a current “please leave” slip on a Library desk for a short period of time.
SOLO gives you access to the University's catalogue and those of most college libraries, as well as access to e-resources.
We welcome your suggestions for books to purchase for the Library. Please get in touch with our Library team if you have any questions about the progress of your book suggestion.

If you cannot find one of our books on the shelf, please fill in a Report a Missing Book form. A member of Library staff will investigate and report back to you.
