Studying at a distance throughout the summer

Working from home

Library and IT advice is available 24/7 every day – by phone (0113) 812 1000 or chat (via bit.ly/LLIContactUs). You can also email us 08:30 – 16:30 Monday – Friday.

Use Discover for fast and easy searching of our books and journals and find help and support on your Subject Support web pages.

You can find information via thousands of electronic resources; we have added New/Trial Databases from publishers to our Databases A-Z list on our website. 

You can also still recommend new eBooks for your study. You can now find information on the accessibility features of our eBook platforms on the eBook Collections page.  Find the name of the eBook collection on the list and click on the Accessibility Help link.

If you need support from our Academic Support Team you can make an appointment either online, by email or by phone. Just complete the Get Help form on the Library’s Subject Support Pages.

 

Are you a distance learner but live locally?

If you are moving out of your student accommodation or graduating you can return books borrowed from either Library to a drop-off point inside the main doors of the Leslie Silver Building, City Campus, 09:00 – 17:00 Monday to Friday. Please bring them in a bag or box to make them safer to handle. We can only accept books only at this point - please hold on to laptops/equipment from Media Loans.

Your loans will stay on your account for now but we’re not charging any fines whilst the Library is closed.

If you don’t want to make the journey yet or can’t get to City Campus please don’t worry, just hold on to your books for a while longer.

 

Graduating this summer?

If you are graduating this summer you will lose access to your university accounts by 29 September.

1. MyBeckett, your student email account, P:drive (webfiles) will remain active until 29 September 2020. Back up any files you need and transfer emails and contacts to an alternative account before then.

2. Your Microsoft Office 365 account will remain active until 29 September, after that access to the full version will end and any installed software will become read-only. Transfer any content you're likely to need in the future.

3. You'll also lose access to your OneDrive on 29 September, so move any saved work to a different storage location before then.

4. The Alumni tab will appear in MyBeckett within five days of your award being confirmed and this will give you more information.

5. You can use Google Takeout to transfer docs, calendars and YouTube videos. 

6. Creating a free PebblePad Alumni Account will enable you to keep all of your PebblePad work and store it in a new personal account. Our step-by-step guide shows you how to convert your account. If you want an alumni account, please create it before 29 September.

7. Make sure your personal data is up-to-date
