DSCF0548If you can’t find a quiet space or an available computer on which to complete your Statutory and Mandatory elearning, then look no further – come and visit us in the Staff Library!

We have 11 computers in a very pleasant space on the 2nd floor of New Alderley House, where you can work in peace and receive support from library staff, who will help you to get started.

There’s no need to book, so please just come along with your username and temporary password details.  

Library space improved

Listening to user feedback has prompted a change to the library layout.  The shared space area which combines office staff  and library facilities has been re-arranged to define the different spaces more clearly.  For improved access and convenience, 4 computers and a scanner have been repositioned closer to the main library room.  These are intended for anyone wanting to drop-in and check their email but can also be used for elearning.  In addition, a large table with seating for 6 provides staff and students with somewhere for private study.


The changes will be complete when a number of  bookshelves are repositioned nearer the main library.

Please have a look around next time you visit and let us know what you think.  We are always keen to hear your views.
