Library Opening Hours have changed


Our Library opening hours have now changed, 7 November 2022 - 19 February 2023. You can find our updated opening hours here.


A new Megasearch!


From Monday 29 August, your MegaSearch will look a bit different.  It’s had a makeover to bring you a better way to access, search, choose and use library resources.  You’ll see modern results lists, a personalised dashboard, and greater citing, sharing and liking options. 

If you have any issues using Megasearch, particularly if you are using Chrome,  you may need to clear the cache and cookies from your browser. Installing LibKey Nomad will help too - LibKey Nomad is a browser extension that detects available scholarly content (see more at the bottom of this page). Please see our Megaseach trouble shooting page if you are still having issues.

There’s  a new EBSCO Mobile app you can download, and a concept map that helps you make connections across related subjects.

And if you have any questions, please email
