The Library Catalogue helps you find resources in the Library.

It covers the majority of our collections, including:

  • books
  • e-books
  • full-text journal articles
  • databases and more.

You can also use it to save searches, place holds, view your library account and renew loans.

Sign in to your Library Account to:

  • Access subscribed resources, such as Ebsco, ProQuest and Gale databases.
  • Add titles to your e-Shelf
  • Place holds on items out on loan.
  • Check your current loans and holds, renew your loans, and save or access saved searches

You can sign into your Library Account from the link in the top right corner of the Library catalogue

This will take you to your usual student login screen if you haven't already logged in.

If you have, you will seamlessly be directed to your account without having to log in again.
