Finding a library book

finding book - 627x327

The library contains thousands of books and other resources.  We use the library catalogue to locate specific books as it contains details of every book, journal and other resource in the library.  The catalogue tells us:

  • whether the library has a book
  • how many copies of the  book we have
  • whether the book is currently available
  • where the book is located in the library

You can search the library catalogue at any of the four dedicated PCs in the library (two on each level) or at any device which is connected to the internet.  These tutorials demonstrate how to find a book in the library: View tutorial or View in Moodle

Noise zones in the library

noise zones 2

The library is divided into three main noise zones:

  • Red zone for silent study (in the room directly opposite the SID desk)
  • Orange zone for individual study (the right-hand wing, upstairs and downstairs)
  • Green zone for group study (the left-hand wing, upstairs and downstairs)

noise zones

The library is divided in this way in order to allow students to study in the way that suits them.  We ask you to respect other students and choose to sit in the zone that is appropriate to the level of noise you will make!

Remember that mobile phones should be switched to silent in all areas of the library.
