Help for Distance Learners

Every student is different and any may encounter problems in their use of the library because of their location, work commitments or personal circumstances. Problems can seem worse when you have no colleagues to discuss them with so please do not hesitate to contact the library to sort out any difficulties you are having related to our services. We offer a variety of ways of contacting the library from home or work, available through the four cyan buttons available on the right-hand side of every Library web page.
