We are currently experiencing off-campus access issues with British Standards, with reports that some users are unable to access the service on-campus.
The issue has been reported to British Standards, but please try off-campus applications as an alternative access method
Access over 500 new titles to read online or download for free.
Here are three examples to give a taste of what’s on offer:
Precision Cosmology : the first half million years (2017) follows developments in cosmology right up to the latest data analysis of big astronomical datasets.
Memoir of the Life and Labors of the Rev. Jeremiah Horrox (1859) gives an account of the life of one of Britain’s greatest astronomers and includes a translation of his major work, Venus in Sole Visa, a draft of the treatise on the transit of Venus which he correctly calculated and observed in 1639.
Alien life imagined (2012) tells the story of how our portrayal of extraterrestrial life has developed over the last two and a half thousand years.

Click here to take the library survey.
On Monday 13th November we’re launching our Library Survey. We’re always striving to be the best we can be and to do that we want to know more about what really matters to our customers and where we can make things better.
This survey will ask you about several areas of library provision and for each one it will ask you to score them in three areas:
- Minimum Service Level – what is the minimum level of service you would expect
- Desired Service Level – what would you ideally like the level of service to be
- Perceived Service Level – how do you think the library is performing at the moment
The results will be used to help us plan improvements to our services to better suit customer needs.
The Library Survey is open to students and staff alike and we’d like as many opinions as possible. It should only take about five minutes to complete and there’s an option to enter a prize draw to win one of three £25 Amazon vouchers.
Help us be the best library we can be!
