Due to the current situation, students are not allowed to come into the library until further notice. However, you can still borrow ebooks - just follow the instructions below:

How to borrow electronic and audio books

Taking responsibility

All the physical library books borrowed before the lockdown will be renewed until the lockdown is lifted/eased.

Students are responsible for looking after the items they have borrowed.  In the event that any items are damaged, they will not be in trouble but will be expected to pay for the loss or damage. 

Finding an interesting book

We have a Library catalogue and reading lists on Oliver or you can browse the eplatform.  Books that are already out on loan can be reserved and the student will be placed on a waiting list.

For eBook and Audiobook collection, our eLibrary can be found here: https://littleilford.eplatform.co/
