What changes have been made to the Library Services during the Coronavirus pandemic?

The Library reopened to users on 13 July 2020. For more information see our dedicated FAQ.


Important - Library Online only

We treat your well-being and the health of our community extremely seriously. Following on from the Vice-Chancellor’s message concerning the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that the safest and best way forward for the time being is to have online library services only.

The Library building is closed - our online Library Anywhere is fully available.

During this period, you don't need to worry about book returns; there won't be any fines whatever the due date, and your items will not be recalled back to the Library. Please don't post books back to us either.

For the time being we won't be able to offer reservations, print inter library loans, click & collect requests or postal loans. We are also unable to satisfy any inter library loans requests (including for articles and chapters) as our suppliers are not operating at the moment. We encourage you to make the most of our eResources, and you can use our Suggest a Book service for eBooks.

We have a dedicated Coronavirus FAQs section with answers to some of our most commonly asked questions.

For queries you can get in touch with us via Library Chat or email Monday to Friday, 8am - 7pm.

You can also access the Academic Achievement Team’s online webinar and workshop recordings as well as all other interactive academic skills resources on the Learning Skills Hub. Check out our Online Study Tool Kit; it's got lots of information about all sorts of ways we can help you with Study Skills queries.

Some of our publishers are temporarily lifting restrictions or providing increased access to their online content to help support universities with remote teaching. The Library are coordinating this and will be providing regular updates on access to additional resources. You can find new eBooks, video content and other materials for your subject area on your Subject Resources guide along with all of our existing online content.

And don’t forget Studiosity for when you want free 24/7 feedback on your assignment.

For external visitors, please view our Visitors to the Library webpage for details.

Information and support for University of Roehampton students, staff and people in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19) can be found on the dedicated University page.
