Welcome to all our new students! We support all the students and staff at CDS. We are looking forward to meeting you all soon, in person or online.
You have a lot of information to absorb during your first weeks at Cranfield.
The Library staff are happy to help you with any questions you might have. You will meet your Information Specialist librarian during your induction. They understand your area of study and will show you how to access and use our resources.
We are available online every weekday from 8am-7pm (9am-5pm on Fridays) to help you when you need us. If we can’t answer your questions quickly by telephone or email, then we will arrange a time for a video call with you.
Use our website to access our databases, eJournals and eBooks, and to find details of our printed collection. Library Search is a great place to start, because it allows you to search across our printed collection and a broad selection of our online databases. We recommend you search specific databases individually when you need to find more targeted content relevant to your particular subject.
You can access nearly all our online resources from anywhere using your University network username and password.
Using the Library building
You are welcome to use Barrington Library to study – there are both individual study spaces and bookable group study rooms. You can browse and borrow items from our print collection in person, or we are happy to post print items to you if you are studying part-time or online and live more than 10 miles away from the site.
