You may want to search our library catalogue before you visit to make sure we hold the information you are looking for in our library collection. Use Library Search (below) to find textbooks, ebooks, journals, articles and more.


Quick tip:
     If you are searching for books and journal titles, click on the Catalogue tab once you have carried out the initial search.

Using the University online resources

 Our online licence agreements allow on-campus access only for non-university staff and students so you will need to physically visit the Forum Library (Streatham Campus, Exeter) if you would like to use our online collections.

Our Walk-in access allows you to use dedicated PCs in order to access a range of online material (ID required).

To access our online resources:

1.  Go to the Library Enquiry Desk and ask Library Staff for Walk-In access.

2.  You will be asked to complete a registration form and show ID (ideally including photo and proof of address) each time you want to use the online resources.

3. By registering as a walk-in user, you indicate an agreement to comply with the acceptable use policy and copyright law.

Top tip: Bring a USB memory stick along with you to save any files you want to keep
