Library Services - Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus – COVID-19

We have a number of measures in place to ensure the health and safety of staff and students. Please ensure that you follow all safety notices and instructions.

Face coverings are strongly encouraged and recommended (unless you are exempt) in enclosed and crowded spaces where you may come into contact with people you don’t normally meet and especially when moving around the library.


Can I access print material if I'm self-isolating?

Yes, our ‘Scan and Send’ service allows you to request scanned extracts from our physical book and journal collections (subject to copyright restrictions). 

Please note that these scans can only be used by you - no further sharing is permitted. Any scanning requests from academic staff (for teaching purposes) should instead be placed using the 'Request Digitisation' option within your Talis Aspire resource lists.

Can I make an online appointment with my Subject Librarian?

You can book a online appointment with your Subject Librarian. Specific information for your subject can be found on our subject pages.

How can I access the Writing and Learning Centre?

All appointments (including Maths and Stats) are currently delivered online. Book an appointment slot with an advisor, choose a time that suits you and you'll be sent a calendar invitation with a link to a Google Meet so you can log in to the appointment at the correct time. You may have up to two WLC appointments about any given assignment. For dissertations you may have up to four appointments. Note: you may only book one appointment at a time.

Students on placement may send a draft assignment for written feedback. Attach your draft to an email to: and tell us on which specific elements you would like advice.

Can I still use other university libraries (SCONUL Access)?

The SCONUL Access scheme remains suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is currently due to restart in November 2021.
