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.

MyBeckett Upgrade 2019

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!
