Got an assignment due? Request the books you need and get some help from the library!

There are assignment deadlines coming up, so now seems like a good time to remind you to Request books which are out on loan to other students.

If the book you need has already been borrowed by someone else, you will need to place a Request on iFind. When you do this, an email is sent to the student who has the book. The email tells the student that the book can’t be renewed anymore and asks them to return the book as someone else would like to borrow it. You’ll get an email to tell you when the book is ready for you to borrow. There’s a short video which shows you how to Request items on iFind, or just ask for help at the Library Desk.

Please remember that there are lots of online resources for you too. Many of our books are available as ebooks. You are expected to use journals in your research as well as textbooks, so use iFind and the library’s subject databases to find relevant articles. Business Source Complete and the Proquest Business Collection are both excellent databases of business and management material. You can find guides and other resources on our Library Guides pages: Please tell us if you can’t find the books and journal articles that you need.

Subject Librarians can also help with referencing!

If you have any questions or need any help, please email us at or book an appointment through the calendar on Library Guides: A librarian is also available 12.00-16.00 every Thursday during term time for drop-in queries.

Good luck with your assignments!
