Have you heard about or seen a great book that would be perfect for your course – but we don’t have it in the library?
Books by You! is your chance to make suggestions about ‘titles’ you’d like the library to buy. You can make as many suggestions as you like up to and including 31st March, so get involved and start making your suggestions!
Following a recent survey about newspaper usage the library has decided to cancel a number of printed newspapers.
Newspapers are available online – the primary source isNexis
This covers about 2,500 publications from across the world, including most major UK newspapers. Coverage varies between publications, but commonly extends from the late 1990s to the present day. There’s more information available on the Journalism, PR and Media subject guide on the Library Gateway.
The money saved on not buying newspapers is going towards ‘Books by You!’. This event will take place in March and means you’ll be able to make your own suggestions about the books we buy. We’ll be telling you more about this very soon!

It’s exam time for many of you and we’d like to remind you about the best areas to study if like Sherlock to need a bit of peace and quiet to concentrate…
Everyone likes a different environment and if you happen to be one of those that cherishes the silence – here are the best places to study…
There is a silent study room on level 2 or there’s a quiet study room on level 4
At Collegiate library
The silent study room is on the first floor, you’ll find it to your left in the quiet study room. There is another quiet study room on the ground floor in the foyer area too
Please help us to keep the silent areas silent – it really is crucial for some!
If you need to report a disturbance between 9am – 5pm you can do this online via chat. Library staff will alert security staff who will come and walk round the reported area. From 5pm to 9am (and at any other times if you prefer), please tell security staff at the Reception desks about any disturbances, again they will come and have a walk round or talk to anyone as necessary.
The learning centres are packed at the moment and computers are in high demand. If you discover one that isn’t working, please let us know at the Helpdesk and we’ll get it fixed as soon as we can. Sometimes, you might see a PC or a printer with a piece of paper on it that says ‘This equipment is currently being serviced’. That means someone else has already told us about the fault and we’re working on it.
If you’ve booked a computer and it won’t let you log in or logs you out suddenly, come to the Helpdesk and we’ll help you find another PC.
