Introduction to your University Library
London Campus Introduction - Interactive Presentation
Access material on your reading lists (Reading List service)

The University’s online Reading List service gives you access to your reading material for your modules. Wherever possible, items on your reading lists have been provided electronically as ebooks, digitised chapters and links to electronic journals. You can access your reading lists at or by following the link from your module in the eLP.

Discover and access your online Library collection
When your independent learning and self-directed study takes you beyond your reading lists, Library Search gives you access to millions of books, journal articles, newspaper articles, audio-visual material, datasets and other scholarly resources in Northumbria’s print and digital Library Collection.

For help using Library Search, take a look at our Library Search toolkit.
Requesting books from your Newcastle campus

To consult an item not referenced on your reading lists you can request a copy from your libraries in Newcastle. We will supply you with a digital version if possible, or a print copy when a digital copy is not available.

To request books start by using the Library Search and when you have found the item you require make a reservation and select ‘London Campus’ from the drop-down menu. To do this you will need to be logged into your Library account with your Northumbria username and password.

For help using Library Search, take a look at our Library Search toolkit.

Recommend a book for your Library collection

In addition to your reading lists we encourage all students to recommend books for the Library collection using the Recommend a book form.

We will supply you with a digital version if possible, or a print copy when a digital copy is not available. We will inform you when the digital version is available, and if only a print version is available will send it for you to pick up as a reservation at Middlesex Street.

Request resources outside your Library collections (Inter Library Loans)

The Inter Library Loan Service is available to help you obtain material not held in the University Library collection. Only material to support academic study, teaching or research may be requested. For detailed information about the service take a look at the Inter Library Loan online guide.

Access other Libraries in London

There are many other libraries in London in which you might want to study. Some will allow you to access them free of charge whereas others have a membership fee. It is always best to contact other University Libraries in advance if you are planning to visit. There are two free to access libraries which you may find particularly useful:

The British Library welcomes anyone undertaking research at their reading rooms at St Pancras in London, which are approximately half an hour away by public transport from Middlesex Street. You will need a free Reader Pass to do so. For details of how to obtain a pass and access the British Library collections in London please visit the British Library website.

City Business Library is the only dedicated public library for business information, offering free access to the UK's most comprehensive collection of business databases and publications. The Library is situated in Aldermanbury, 15 minutes walk away from Middlesex Street. Further information, including opening hours can be found here.

Develop your information literacy and study skills (Skills Plus)

Skills Plus is the Library’s collection of online learning materials, with a focus on digital literacy and study skills. Using these resources is an excellent way to get help whenever you need it and wherever you happen to be.

From the available options you can choose the type of help you need, and the format or style you prefer. Skills Plus has a range of online tutorials with quizzes, video demonstrations and printable helpguides.

Where to get help and support (Ask4Help)

The Ask4Help service provides you with help and support to access a range of University services including library, disability support, welfare and careers. Contact us by phone and speak to a member of our dedicated enquiry team or email us your questions.
