Library services

Usual library services are in place for the self-issue and loan of books. In addition we are happy to assist you with the following:

  • Arranging access to ebooks.
  • Posting books from our collections to addresses within the UK (only for students given official permission to study from home; extended loan periods apply).
  • Leaving library books for collection from the WML entrance area (this service is only for students with a specific medical or other reason preventing them from entering the WML reading areas).
  • Scanning books from our collections (either one chapter or up to 5%, whichever is greater, in compliance with copyright restrictions).
  • For students who are self-isolating on site, delivery of books to student rooms.
