The Library offers a lot of services and resources - you might have heard the names (Libby? Beamafilm? Press Reader?) but be unsure how to use them. We'd love to help you get sorted.

Here are some (but not all) of the things we can help with:

  • Using our ebook apps (Libby and BorrowBox)
  • Using our film database (Beamafilm)
  • Accessing GivUS and GivMe funding databases
  • renewing and reserving online
  • searching the catalogue effectively
  • Using of our online newspapers and video tutorials (Press Reader and LinkedInLearning)
