Coronavirus: library information

Page updated: 27 March 2020

Service availability while services in the Library building are suspended

As part of the University's response to coronavirus, the Brynmor Jones Library building has suspended walk-in access for the foreseeable future.

We will update this page when we have more information.

All online services available through the library website remain available, and we are working to make as much as possible available online in these unusual circumstances.

The links below provide shortcuts and updates on how to access various services. If you have any queries about availability or are having difficulty accessing any of the services or resources, please raise this through, the library help page, or ask via library chat, all of which continue to be monitored daily.

Access to resources online

  • You can access e-books and e-journals via the library catalogue
  • You can search for online journal articles using Summon
  • Links to electronic resources for your modules are available through your module reading lists (or click on Reading List within the module site on Canvas)
  • Subject guides and our A-Z of eResources can be found on our electronic resources page
  • Electronic theses can be accessed via Hydra and EThOS
