Due to Covid-19, the Library Team is continuing to work from home and therefore our hardcopy collection is largely unavailable. If there is not an e-resource that can be used as an alternative and only the hardcopy will meet your needs, then please get in touch with us. If you currently have a book on loan, you can now return this by post. See above for address.

While most of our hardcopy books are currently unavailable our online offerings are available anywhere, anytime – all you need is a device and a web connection.
