Library Services: Part-time Students

Extra help for part-time students

If you’re studying part-time we know you might have extra time pressures and not be able to come to campus as often as you might like.

We therefore made some extra services available to help.

Books By Post
Any book in our catalogue, which is available to borrow, can be posted out to you. Just fill in our postal loan form to make a request.

                            Photocopying and Scanning
We can photocopy or scan any journal articles or sections of books that we have in our collection. We will then send it to you by post or email.

Photocopy/Scanning Request

Please note: there is a charge for each printed page we copy and send, which is the same price as if you had copied the pages on campus.
                            Books Put Aside for you
If there is an item that you want to borrow, you can request it online for us to collect it from the shelf and place it on our hold shelf at the Perry Library, for you to pick up when you come to campus. Items will be kept on the hold shelf for up to one week.

                            Online Resources
Almost all of our online resources such as journals and e-books are available to you at home or wherever you have internet access. You will need to be connected to the GlobalProtect VPN to access them - see help sheet below.
