Welcome to the Leeds Beckett Library web pages for part-time students.
These pages highlight some of the information and services which will support you in your studies.
If you are studying on a distance learning course please also take a look at our pages to support distance learners.
If it's a while since you last did some studying you'll find our Skills for Learning website very helpful, including podcasts on subjects such as time management and student confidence. You will need your standard Username and Password if you are accessing Skills for Learning resources off-campus.
Please also take time to browse around our full website and do Contact Us if you need any help.
The Library has over 325,000 print resources and over 140,000 electronic, available on and off-campus.
Our search tool, Discover, lets you find these quickly and easily.
Each course has its own Academic Librarian who can help you with developing your information seeking skills. They also maintain online guides to the resources in the subjects taught at our University.
Undergraduates can borrow 15 items and taught postgraduates 17 items at a time. You can borrow resources from across our collections, not just those for your course.
Both our Libraries at City Campus (Sheila Silver Library) and Headingley are open 24/7, 365 so you can study when it suits you best. You need your Campus Card to access Sheila Silver Library at all times. At Headingley Library you will need it 19:00-08:30.
You can bring your own laptop into the Libraries and access the internet via our wireless network.
