Open Day self-guided tour

Welcome to the University Library self-guided tour!  This self-guided tour comprises eight signposted tour stops that you can follow if you visit the Library on an open day.  You can scan the QR code at each tour stop or tap on the tour stop section below to reveal text and audio commentary about what you can see at that tour stop.  

If you are visiting the Library other than on an open day, we recommend our standalone audio tour instead.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask any member of Library staff.  If you would prefer a guided tour, please go through the gate between the turnstiles and ask any member of Library staff in the Atrium if guided tours are currently available.

You can borrow full-size laptops, complete with power cables, from the lockers on the ground floor to use anywhere in the Library.  You can also bring in your own devices and connect them to the secure, high-speed wifi network or plug them into the docking stations on the upper floors to take advantage of the power and personalised set-up of your device while enjoying the comfort of using a large curved desktop screen, keyboard and mouse.  You can plug any device into the power sockets underneath most tables on the ground floor and in the floor and wall sockets on the upper floors.

New books and the current issues of popular magazines and journals are displayed to your right in the café area.  Back issues of printed magazines and journals are available for you to browse and scan on the second floor.  You can read another 7,000 magazines and newspapers online through the PressReader app and nearly 100,000 full-text electronic journals through our other electronic resources.  We also offer image, sound, animation, and video databases, statistical, news, market and company information resources and other specialist databases to support each subject.  

>>> Please head towards the café near the front of the building for tour stop 5.
