Multiple copies of student textbooks and many research texts are held in the Library. In order to borrow print books, you will need your student card and University PIN. You can login to your library account to renew and reserve books online.

Where possible, we purchase e-books which you can view both on and off-campus using your student login. If you are using an Android or IOS device to access e-books, please ensure you have the latest version of Adobe installed.

Check NELSON to find books on your reading list or on a topic using the following tips:

  • On a reading list – search using a combination of author surname and title keywords, e.g. Upton developmental
  • On a topic – keywords or phrases, e.g. personality or “positive psychology”
  • Check the publication year to be sure of the most recent edition
  • Click the title to see full book details and all copies

Alternatively, you may have an electronic reading list set up by your module team which can be accessed from here or your NILE module .
