How can I access the University library?

Information for students on how to access the University library during national lockdown measures.

For those students who are on campus in the coming weeks, facilities such as study space and the library will be made available in a COVID-safe way and in line with current Government guidance around national lockdown measures.

You can find more information and up-to-date opening times on the Library webpages. You can also access resources online, and make use of click and collect, click and post, and contactless returns services.

Our Library buildings comply with Covid-19 physical safety measures and we have also made it easier for you to access resources online – including increasing our already extensive e-resources and e-versions of key reading list materials. Our click and collect, click and post, and contactless returns services will make accessing the resources you need for your studies easy and safe.

Regular updates regarding Library services will be published on the Library’s web pages and through the Library’s Twitter feed @nclroblib
