Using the libraries
Your University Card is your library card. Use it to access our libraries, use the printers and borrow books from our self-service machines.
Our eight libraries are home to subject-specific resources but you're welcome to use any of our libraries.
Our libraries will look, and work, a little different this year due to social distancing measures. Find out more about our safety measures
Visit our libraries by booking a study space or dropping in for a short stay visit.
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 physical library collections and access thousands of e-resources including ebooks and ejournals.
Find the key resources for your subject area in our online subject guides - coming soon.
How many books can I borrow?
You can borrow up to 60 print books from our libraries.
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. Return any books on time to avoid fines.
Books can be borrowed during short-stay visits to our libraries or requested online in advance using Click and Collect.
