Students: Win a £50 Amazon voucher!

We need you to complete a short questionnaire on our current University Library facilities for the chance to win a £50 Amazon voucher.

The University is planning to upgrade and redevelop the Library building and transform it into a true 21st century learning environment. Student feedback is vital in the planning of this space – it’s your library, so we would like you to tell us what you want!

Library Feedback Questionnaire

Copies of the questionnaire are also available at the SEZ desk in the Library.

Literature Collection now on Level 2 of the Library!

We’re busy making room on Level 3 for all the new books the Librarians have been buying for you so have moved our Literature collection down to Level 2.  You’ll find the Literature collection on the same shelves as our Audio Visual collection which is right beside Student Services.

We’ve got just over 700 titles covering the classics and some more modern literature and they can be identified by ‘LIT’ on their spine labels.

So, if you fancy catching up on some reading for pleasure/leisure before the serious studying starts, get yourself along to Level 2 of the Library.  And let us know which are your faves!
