There are three key elements to the Library and Information Service:

1. Resources
You can access a wide range of online resources to support your studies through the ‘Online Library’ tab on the VLE. This includes:
  • Online journals (through resources such as Business Source Complete, JSTOR, Hein Online, Lexis and Westlaw)
  • Ebooks (either through resources such as Lexis or Westlaw, or through platforms such as Dawsonera and MyiLibrary)
  • Law databases (such as Lexis, Westlaw, PLC and Lawtel)
  • Finance databases (including Datastream, Reuters3000 and Thomson One Banker)
  • Business and management databases (such as Mintel and IDS Studies)

The vast majority of online resources are available to you wherever you are, simply by going through the VLE and using your Athens username and password (emailed to you when you start your studies).

The business school is resourced entirely online – this means all your ebooks and journals are online as well as specialist databases.

Wherever possible the law school is also resourced online, but we do have collections of printed materials at each site where we teach law as well.

2. Study Space
All our centres have dedicated space for students so that you can study between classes, or call in at any other convenient time when the buildings are open.

Where possible, at our larger libraries, this includes space within the library for group study and silent study as well as plenty of PCs and general study desks. All our buildings have wifi throughout so that you can bring your own laptop in. Even our smaller sites have plenty of study desks and PCs, and common areas for chatting and studying with friends.

Printing and photocopying facilities are available within the library areas.

3. Training and Advice
Library staff are available seven days a week to answer any questions you might have. Staff are on-site in London, Leeds and Manchester, and available by phone, email and instant messaging to all students.

Induction sessions are held for most programmes to introduce you to the resources you’ll need for your studies, and ensure you know how to use them.

Further sessions are held through the year, giving you the opportunity to improve your research skills.
