Our superb, multi-award winning Bernard King Library provides a mix of learning environments to meet different student needs, be it a quiet, individual study space or a plasma screen equipped group study room for team working, discussion or practising a presentation.
Over 50% of the 570 study spaces have a networked PC to provide the flexibility to work online alongside traditional print resources. Our wireless network and touchdown stations give students the option of using a laptop, whether their own or one borrowed from our Enquiry Desk.
The Bernard King Library is well stocked with over 120,000 books and 400 print journals but our extensive range of online resources extends the library beyond the campus, allowing students to work locally or at any location across the world. Online access to a vast range of information, including 10,000+ electronic journals and 36,000+ e-books, is available to all our students whether they are on campus, or working remotely.
Our support mechanisms reflect the blurring boundaries between ‘IT’ and the ‘electronic library’, with an integrated enquiry desk offering students access to friendly help and advice on the use of IT and library resources. All students have the opportunity to receive library and information skills and ICT training as an integral part of their programme of study or through drop-in sessions at a time of their choosing.
