On placement?

When on placement you can continue to use the Library and borrow resources. You are still entitled to access our electronic resources (eBooks, ejournals etc) but please bear in mind the following:

  • In accordance with our license agreements our electronic resources may only be used for academic work, which includes course work, dissertations, private study or academic research. Our electronic resources may not be used for work undertaken on behalf of your placement employer.

Before accessing resources we recommend logging into MyBeckett (then click on the 'Library' tab) to ensure you get full access to everything. Please Contact Us if you can't remember your log in, or need help finding information. For subject specific help in finding resources contact your Academic Librarian.

Returning from placement?

No problem if you haven't used the resources or the Library for a while, welcome back - we are here to help!

  • Catch up with the Library refurbishment, as we may have made some exciting changes to the Library since you last visited.

Get subject specific help

Each course has its own Academic Librarian who can help you with developing your information seeking skills.

They also maintain guides to the subject specific resources taught at our University.

Skills for Learning help

Skills for Learning have tutorials, resources and advice to help refresh your academic skills such as essay writing, research, maths and IT, whilst away from the University or returning from placement.

Use another university library

Apply for SCONUL Access and visit other university libraries which may be nearer than we are!


Use PebblePad to help document and plan your placement. Please see our help pages for more information.
