If you are a distance learner, why not have your books and articles sent to you?

If you do not live locally and find it difficult to visit the Library in person, why not have books and articles sent to you?

There is a charge for this service. See the Postal Loans tab for details.

Keeping up-to-date

We have recorded an informal talk about many of the services mentioned in this guide.  It takes about an hour.  Please click on the link below, which may take a little while to get started.

Searching the literature

There is a talk about literature searching available.  It takes about an hour to listen to the full presentation, but you can select the sections of most interest to you.




This guide describes Library services which may be of use to students on distance learning courses, on placement within the UK or 'away' students.
