Electronic resources and eBooks are only available to members of the University library.

If you are not a member of the library, you can join the library as a visitor, and we can offer walk-in access via a guest login. This enables you to view most e-journals, eBooks and databases that the University subscribes to. This facility is only available during staffed hours. To join you need to make a personal visit to the library during staffed hours and bring proof of ID and address.

Our Library Catalogue is freely available and includes details of all of our e-journals and eBooks, however access requires a login.

You can search the guest version of DISCOVER to get an idea of the resources that would be available to you. Note that the guest version of DISCOVER only searches a subset of all of the resources available to members of the University.

The following online resources are not available to walk-in users due to licensing restrictions:

  • American Association for Cancer Research e-journals
  • Elsevier MDL DiscoveryGate databases and major reference works
  • Euromonitor Passport GMID
  • Key Note market reports
  • LexisNexis/Butterworths
  • Mintel market reports
  • Westlaw

Registered walk-in users can print from the Library's electronic resources subject to copyright conditions, and as long as this is for non-commercial use only ie. for private study or research.

Printing and scanning for any other use (internet web pages, personal e-mails, other documents) is only available for staff and students as this requires a username and password to access the University network.

Visitors should access the public library service if they require access to printing or scanning facilities for these purposes.

Subject to copyright conditions, visitors can however photocopy in the Library by purchasing a guest card and adding credits.
