Introduction to Library and Learning Resources

Welcome to Library and Learning Resources.

We're here to help you find the resources you need to get great grades, and help you find the perfect place to study. We're also here to help you learn how to effectively find and evaluate information, and answer any questions you might have about the library.

We've put together this guide to introduce you to our spaces, and link you to our getting started guide and Library Help pages.

We've also got a dedicated page for our opening hours.
