Welcome to the Leeds Beckett Library web pages for Postgraduate Students.  

These pages highlight some of the information and services which will support you in your studies. If you're returning to study after some time away our Preparing for Postgraduate Study web page has lots of resources to help you make the transition.

We also have a page for Researchers which you might find useful and our Skills for Learning Team have a Postgraduate Collection of resources to help you with your research and study skills. 

Please also take time to browse around our full website and do Contact Us if you need any help.

Finding resources

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.

Taught postgraduates can borrow 25 items at a time and you can access other University Libraries or apply for Interlibrary Loans if you are looking for something we don't have in stock.  Or you can use our Pay-to-Post service to have books sent to you at home.

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.


Studying in the Library

Both our Libraries at City Campus (Sheila Silver Library) and Headingley are open 24/7, 365.

We offer silent study areas and Postgraduate Research Rooms on the second and third floors of Sheila Silver Library. 

There is lots of space for group work or you can book a Student Meeting Room for more privacy.
