Welcome to the Library

Sheila Silver Library at City Campus and Headingley Library are open 24/7, 365 days a year and MyBeckett is where you’ll find your modules, assignments, reading lists, and email plus Library resources for your subject. There's a lot to take in during the first few weeks of university so we've put together a checklist to get you started.

Library website re-launched

The Library website was re-launched last week with a new structure, look and feel. You should be able to use the site as usual, but please excuse us if some pages don’t look quite right or function correctly straight away. Please contact the Library or Offsite if you have difficulties in finding anything you need.

MyBeckett Upgrade Summer 2019

We upgrade to a new version of MyBeckett every year to make sure it’s in the best shape possible to support you. But, we need time to complete the upgrade and to test the system and functionality so that MyBeckett is in full working order when it comes back online. The upgrade is carried out over the Summer to minimise disruption during the teaching year - this years upgrade means it should never need to be down for future maintenance!

How can the Library support you with referencing?

Getting good marks for your assignment, whether it is an essay, a report or a dissertation, depends on many things, including the citing and referencing of all the sources you have consulted. Don’t lose marks through poor or careless referencing. See how we can help you.

Help with your reading lists
