Follow our tips to keep yourself safe online.
Welcome back to the Library - see below for what's new to help you with your studies.
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, email and timetable 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.
If it feels like forever since you did any studying or you're wondering what it will be like to study at University then the LBU Study Ready course is for you!
We are relaunching the Library website during w/c 22 July with a new structure, look and feel. You can still use the site but please excuse us if some pages don’t look quite right or function correctly straight away. Please contact us if you have problems finding anything you need.
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!
Just graduated? Planning to stay on for a postgrad course? The Library can help keep your study skills on track.
