There are currently no Library staff on the Waterside Campus but we are still here to help:

  • Your books have been renewed automatically and we will continue to do this until we have been told that we can safely reopen the service
  • A click and collect service for books that are not available on NELSON will  be available from Monday 15th June. There is a web form to complete that gives details of how to request and collect items
  • If you want to return your books, for example you are in your final year and will not be returning to campus, you can either post them to us or drop them into the Visitor Centre next to McColls. They will stay on your account until we get back on campus to return them but do not worry about that
  • Please do speak to us if you need any help, you can email us at or use our web form 
  • E-Books and e-journals – and remember, around 80% of our resources are available online as e-books, e-journals or online videos, so check on NELSON to see what we hold electronically.   
  • Please do not stress about your library account or items. If you need any books or articles, please just get in touch. We are a friendly and helpful bunch, please get in touch if you need us!! 😊😊😊

The online LLS Appointment System prevents students from booking an excessive number of tutorials, this is because our work supports the work of your Module Tutor, Course Tutor and PAT (Personal Academic Tutor). Therefore, you should only need to see us when you need extra help. Our focus is to ensure that all students are independent learners and not reliant on Learning Development Tutors to complete their assignments. To remedy this demand for one-to-one appointments, we introduced a drop-in service in 2013 so that if you feel you need more help, you can see a tutor for 10 minutes every day - there are no limits on this. Our online resources – which are available via the Skills Hub and Learning Development Nile Tab – are also a good way for you to develop your academic skills further.
