About our library services

Visiting our libraries

Your University Card is your library card. 

Use it to access our libraries, use the printers and borrow books.

Our eight libraries are home to subject-specific resources but you're welcome to use any location.

How to collect your University Card

 

How do I find books and other resources?

NUsearch is the University's library collections discovery tool.

Use NUsearch to manage your library account, search our collections, place requests and access thousands of e-resources including ebooks and ejournals.

Find the key resources for your subject area in our online subject guides.

 

How many books can I borrow?

You can borrow up to 60 print books from our libraries.

Pop in to our libraries to browse and borrow or place a request on NUsearch and we'll let you know when your book is available to collect.

  • Books are usually issued for seven days and will automatically renew unless someone else requests them.
  • We will email you to let you know if you need to return your books. 
  • Items in high demand will be issued for a shorter period of time and will not auto-renew.
