Open 24/7, 365

Both Headingley and Sheila Silver Libraries are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Don't forget your Campus Card! 


Manage your time!

Just because the Library is open 24/7 doesn't mean you should be studying in it all the time!  Why not take a look at our Skills for Learning pages on Time Management to develop techniques for using your time productively?  The pages include links to apps, a time management podcast and more.
