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!! 😊😊😊

Library and Learning Services offer tailored support to help you to achieve the best degree result possible. The Academic Librarians can help you find, evaluate and reference information for your assignments alongside enabling you to make the best use of NELSON and subject specific databases. Learning Development offers guidance and tuition on academic skills such as essay writing, dissertations, critical analysis, presentation skills, maths and statistics. 

Your tutor will be able to offer advice related to your course and what would be required to achieve a good degree in your particular field. Also, you might like to check out Section 8 of the Student Handbook, available below, for details of how the classification for an award is calculated.
