Reading List News!

We are moving our online reading lists to a new system which will have a new look and feel (but still accessible via MyBeckett) and make it easier to customise and navigate.

Because of this you won’t be able to access your current list from 9 July to 1 August.  We appreciate that this may impact you if you are studying on accelerated and distance learning programmes and have therefore recommended to teaching staff that they create a Word version of the list for you to use during this time.

Blog post 2 4th July

Academic Librarian(s)  or LLIResourceLists@leedsbeckett.ac.uk are able to help staff do this and can also answer any queries. Staff should also continue to send requests for new resources to Academic Librarian(s) throughout this period as this will ensure that resources are ordered before the start of Semester One.

Thank you for your patience as we move to our new system which we’re sure will improve the student experience. Once the system is available we will provide more information about how to use it.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for support 24/7.

We’d love to hear from you!

Autorenewals reminder

The Library remains open over the summer months and staff are here to help you with support, enquiries and book loans.

It’s important to remember that the autorenewals system also continues throughout the summer. So, if there’s a book you would like to borrow, please do place it on hold and we’ll try to get it to you as soon as possible. The flip side of this is that it’s a good idea to return books once you have finished using them, unless you absolutely need them. You are more than welcome to keep your books on loan, but if another student requests them, the items will be recalled from you and it might be more difficult to return them by the due date if you are away for periods. This also means that you need to keep checking your student email, in case one of your loans is recalled.

You can contact the Library by email, phone or online chat. If you’d like to visit the Library in person, do remember to bring your Leeds Beckett campus (student) card with you. Please accept our apologies if you visit the Library at City Campus, as there is refurbishment of the ground floor happening currently. However, the Library remains open throughout the work.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for additional support 24/7.

We’d love to hear from you!

Using other University Libraries

Did you know that you can visit other University libraries closer to home?

The majority of university libraries in the UK and Ireland belong to a reciprocal borrowing scheme called SCONULAccess.

sconul-co-design

This enables students to access university libraries nearer to their home.  You can apply online, see this short video guide on how to apply for SCONULAccess.

Leeds Beckett Library staff will authorise your application by email within 3 working days. Once you have received this, take it (either in print or on your mobile) plus your Campus Card to the library you want to visit (if you haven’t been sent your student card yet please contact your course administrator).  Your email will tell you whether you have reference access or borrowing rights.  Click here for more information on using other libraries.

SCONUL Access doesn’t usually give you access to PCs and electronic resources but you caneduroam_120pix access the eduroam wireless network in other universities so you’ll still be able to access Leeds Beckett electronic resources, the Library website and MyBeckett. Remember to connect to eduroam before you leave Leeds Beckett.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for support 24/7.

We’d love to hear from you!
