Library Support for Distance Learners

Our award-winning University Library has extensive online (and physical) learning resources, and provides a range of support services to students. The Library website provides a range of advice including short videos on finding and using library resources.

Specialist Academic Librarians are available to assist you in using library resources effectively, to give focused advice and to help you develop information and digital literacy skills. You will find the contact details for the librarian for your subject area in Course Information.

As a distance learner, you can contact the library’s “Offsite” service for help and advice. You may also be eligible to apply for SCONUL access to make use of other University libraries in the UK.

Offsite service

Offsite gives library and IT support to Distance Learners and students based off-campus. Please see the Library's Offsite webpages for more information. Here you’ll also find details of how to sign-up for Offsite postal loans.

Disability Advice

Disability Advice is a friendly, confidential team who offer advice and guidance on any disability-related matters within our University. We encourage all applicants and current students to contact them to discuss support and facilities available.

Leeds Beckett University works hard to ensure that, as far as possible, it is accessible to a wide a range of students. We continually anticipate the general requirements of disabled people who experience a broad range of impairments and health conditions and build these into our policies and procedures. Nevertheless, we recognise that some students will require individual adjustments made to enable them to access our assessment, learning and teaching provision.

The University has a Disability Assessment Centre team where students can disclose their disability/impairment in confidence and discuss their reasonable adjustments with experienced Advisers who will then coordinate the arrangements for the adjustments to be made and provide advice and guidance to both students and academic colleagues on the requirements.

You can make contact by telephone or online.

The telephone number is: +44 (0)113 812 5831 and the email address is: disabilityadvice@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.
