The Library Team are still working in the Library and ready to help you with your requests. However did you know that the library is open 24/7? Did you also know that you can access the library resources from any computer - including your home computer? If you want to access the physical library outside of our normal opening hours then you need to be a member. Once you have joined you can request 24 hour access which will usually be granted within 24 hours. There is a self service machine located at the side of the enquiry desk where you can issue, renew or return books. You will need your library PIN and Username, which will have been emailed to you when your joined. If you can't remember them, please contact us and we will send you an email reminder. We've put together a short guide on the resources that you can access and how to access them. We hope that you will find it useful in these difficult and extraordinary times.
