|Shedloads of books - we got 'em|
Where is the library?
In the Gateway building - that's the big blue one that looks like a TV set.

Has it got WiFi?
Yes! Hurrah! Ask for a login at the help desk.
How do I find the books I need?
You can search old-school by browsing the shelves (see details below) or you can search the online catalogue, by going to the Library tab at Blackboard. The library staff will also show you how to search the catalogue.
How many books can I borrow?
Undergraduates can borrow up to ten at a time.
How long can I keep the books I borrow?
Mostly you get to keep them for 7 days, or sometimes 28 days. A few hot items are just loaned for 24 hours. Keep 'em too long and you will have to pay fines. Fines are 10p a day last time we checked.
