Also, a great many IT questions can be answered by consulting the Toolkit, the “digital companion to the University”. The Toolkit brings together many IT related resources into one easy to use place and is often the best place to begin looking for information on all IT matters.
Did you know you may be eligible to borrow material from other UK University libraries? Our University is a member of the SCONUL Access reciprocal scheme. SCONUL Access grants borrowing privileges to various types of library users working or studying at participating higher education libraries in the UK and Ireland.
SCONUL Access provides borrowing privileges for most:
postgraduate research students registered for a PhD, MPhil or similar qualification
part-time, distance learning and placement students
SCONUL Access also provides for a reference only service for most full-time undergraduate students and staff of a few higher education libraries not participating in the reciprocal borrowing arrangements.
Borrowing entitlements – e.g. number of loans, loan period and types of material may vary among institutions.
Please note that access to IT facilities and electronic resources are not normally included in the scheme. You may however be able to access the wireless network on your personal device while visiting other university libraries if they use the same Eduroam wireless network as ourselves. See the university’s guide to Eduroam to learn more.
