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
  • 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 Faculty of Education offers free workshops and tutorials to support you if English is not your first language. This is called English for Academic Purposes (EAP) Extra. You can also self-enrol on an online programme in NILE. Just search for the EAP Extra organisation.

Finally, you may find our English as a Foreign Language (EFL) collection of resources useful. They are located on the fourth floor of the Learning Hub, near the Enquiry Desk.
