Library Offsite Service

Welcome to the Library at Leeds Beckett University

Welcome to Leeds Beckett University Library.  For both new and returning distance learning students please see below for a summary of our services and how we can support your studies.

Our Library website provides access to thousands of electronic resources for your studies. You can use our Discover academic search engine to find these or look at the online guides created for each subject. You can also find your reading lists alongside your modules in MyBeckett.

Help with getting set up with IT, including digital security, using MyBeckett and accessing lectures online is available on our IT Support pages

Our Academic Support team will help you develop your academic skills including essay writing, referencing and research skills. Our new look Skills for Learning website has lots of useful resources and you can book to attend free online workshops via MyHub. You can also book online or phone appointments for help via the form on our Skills and Subject Support web page.

Our Offsite postal loan service is available if you need books to be posted to you. You will need to sign-up for this service. Please submit your form via MyBeckett and then follow the steps on reserving items via the Postal service on the Library Catalogue.

If you are a distance learning student, but live locally and wish to use the Library services on campus then please see the following information:

If you want to study in the Libraries you must book a time and individual space via Book a Study Space. The number of spaces is currently very limited. We are open 09:00 - 21:00 Monday - Friday and 11:00 - 17:00 Saturday and Sunday. 

You can only borrow books via our Click & Collect service. Please ensure you follow all the steps in this process and have an appointment to collect your books before you come to the Library. You can return books to collection points in either Library during the opening times above. 

Please remember to bring your masks with you to campus and wear as directed as well as observing social distancing and hand hygiene when you are on campus.
Extra support continues to be available via our website and online appointments with our Disability Support Team.
