How Can I Access Books When I Am Working Off-campus?

For full time students you can make use of the many thousands of e-books available to you - all of which can be found on our library catalogue Primo.  You will need to set up a VPN connection to enable the access off-campus.

If you are working off-campus and near another university library - you can check to see if they are part of a UK and Ireland scheme called Sconul Access which allows university library users to borrow or use books at other libraries which belong to the scheme.
