Online support

Please remember that most of our library resources (databases, eJournals and eBooks) are available via our website 24/7, as are our referencing and research support areas and lots more. You may also find it helpful to search our blog as many of our previous posts answer frequently asked questions. LinkedIn Learning can provide support for using applications and programmes such as Excel, Matlab and Python.

Additionally you can use our 24/7 online chat service throughout the holiday period. Cover will provided by a global team of reference librarians so you can still get in touch whenever you have a question. If they are unable to answer it they will email us and we will reply to you as soon as possible on our return to work. Access it as you usually do, from our Library Services website.
