COVID-19 ALERT

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 libraryhelp@northampton.ac.uk 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!! 😊😊😊

If there is a key text you need to complete your studies, but it is only available as a printed book, please contact librarians@northampton.ac.uk. Let us know:

  • the book title
  • the author
  • the year or edition
  • the publisher
  • if there are any key chapters you need to access

Library staff will look to see if the book is available for purchase as an e-book, if we can obtain extracts or if the title has been released temporarily for free by the publisher in response to COVID-19/Coronavirus. Please note, there may be instances where a digital version of the text has not been made available to libraries.

Due to the current COVID-19/ Coronavirus situation, we may take longer responding to requests than normal as we are operating our services remotely.
