Using the Library over summer?

We’re open 24/7 during the vacation if you want to come in and study.

However, due to essential electrical work, Sheila Silver Library will be closed Saturday 24 August 06:00-13:00 and Headingley Library will be closed Sunday 25 August 06:00 - Monday 26 August 06:00. 

Remember to have your Campus Card to enter Sheila Silver Library during the day and both Libraries overnight.

Working at home

If you’re at home you can still access your work via OneDrive or via the Files tab in MyBeckett and use Discover for fast and easy searching of our books and journals.

You can also visit other university libraries via the SCONUL Access Scheme (connect to the eduroam wireless network before you leave Leeds so you can use your laptop when you go).

If you don’t need your books over the summer vacation please return them to the Library. Any item that you still have on loan will continue to renew every week unless another student reserves it, or it reaches the maximum number of renewals. We’ll email your University email account if we need you to return your books, so please remember to check it regularly. You’ll then have 7 days to return the item. Please also remember to cancel any Reservations you no longer need so that other students can use the stock.

If you’re graduating this year you should have returned your books by 30 June. You also lose access to your university accounts by 30 September – see our Graduating this Summer blog post for more information.
