Latest updates on IT and Library services

Since closing the Library buildings in March 2020, we’ve continued to provide online access to resources and virtual support from the IS Service Desk and your subject librarians. Over the summer, as a part of our phased re-opening, we have launched a number of services from the Hugh Owen Library to support your learning and teaching and continue to plan for more as regulations permit.
