Search the Library Catalogue

Search by author, title or a subject keyword. Any matching results will be displayed.

You can then find out the following information:

  • where the book is - the shelf mark;
  • how long the book can be borrowed for; 
  • and whether a book is on the shelf or out on loan.

Can't find the book you want?

If all copies of a textbook are on loan you can place a reservation, or there may be a copy available online as an e-book. 

Finding e-books

The easiest way to find if a particular title is available as an e-book is to search the Library Catalogue just as you would for printed books. You can search for an author, title or keyword.

You may be asked for your college IT username and password to view the e-book.
