Our Library website provides access to thousands of electronic resources for your studies, including electronic books and journals. 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.

Advice on getting set up with IT, including digital security, using MyBeckett, downloading Office 365 and accessing lectures and meetings online is available on our IT Support pages. Library staff have also written hints and tips for setting up your study space and learning to learn online.

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

The libraries are open 09:00 - 21:00 Monday - Friday and 11:00 - 17:00 Saturday and Sunday. Spaces must be booked in advance and are available for students who are legally allowed to access campus, including students who usually commute to university and don't have access to appropriate study spaces or facilities to access online learning.

It is recommended that you have a lateral flow test before coming onto campus. Further information is on the University's Covid-19 microsite. If you do need to come to the Library you must follow the health and safety measures and observe guidance on hands, face, space, including wearing your face covering whilst studying.

You can only borrow books via our Click and 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. 

Extra support continues to be available via our website and online appointments with our Disability Support Team.

Please get in touch if you need any help using the Library. Contact us via email or 24 hours a day by phone (0113 812 1000) or chat. Our YouTube channel also has lots of quick videos to get you started with using our services.
