Many of your academic resources are available online. Discover allows you to get started with your research, and searches most of your online resources for you. If you need an introduction to Discover there are videos on our YouTube Channel. There are lots of other useful tutorials on there too.

The Resources section of the Library website has quick links to online resources such as eBooks, subject specific databases and journals.

Need a print book? You can access the Library Catalogue online, so you can place a hold on books for next time you’re in the Library. Not sure how to do this? There’s a step by step guide. Our new autorenewal system also means we’ll renew any books that you borrow (unless they are requested by another user) to save you having to remember to do so.

And don’t forget we’re acquiring more eBook titles all the time. Our Youtube tutorial shows you how to find eBooks and we also have a step by step tutorial of how to access an eBook.

Want to catch up with the news? PressReader has a huge collection of local and national newspapers.

You can also use video research tools such as Box of Broadcasts and Kanopy, to access high quality TV programmes or video content to support your learning.

If you have need help with accessing resources, you can contact the Library 24/7. Phone us on 0113 812 1000 or Chat with us. If you prefer to email us, we’ll respond within 3 hours between 08:30 and 18:30 Monday-Friday or within 24 hours overnight and at weekends.
