As a Nottingham Trent University (NTU) student, you’ll have unlimited access to the libraries at all three of our campuses. Each one offers a large collections of books, journals, and online electronic resources to support your studies. We’ve just upgraded our décor and furniture, to ensure that you’re learning and working in comfort – the libraries are a great place to relax, think, and get your creative juices flowing.
Accessing the NTU libraries and resources
In order to access our three libraries, you’ll need your NTU Student Card.
If you’re looking to use our facilities off-campus, we provide a range of online resources and study support tools, including:
- research skills tutorials, which help you to navigate and make the most of our libraries
- Library OneSearch, which allows you to search our huge collections, and renew your loans.
Before you get started, we recommend visiting the NTU Library website, and our library facilities pages. Here, you’ll find everything you need to know – from opening hours, staffing and facilities, to the tailored support provisions we can offer you.
Borrowing from the libraries
Books are taken out and returned through NTU’s self-service machines, and these are activated by your Student Card. Charges are applied for late items, so keep track of what you’ve borrowed. The vast majority of our collections are available for loan – have a look at our library website to learn more about borrowing items, renewing your loans, and making payments to the library.
If you’re a postgraduate or part-time student, you’ll also have access to SCONUL – this handy national scheme allows you to borrow books and journals from other university’s libraries, nearer to home or work.
