The Hall Caine Library provides a collection of academic resources to support you throughout your studies. The collection includes books, textbooks, eResources, journals and newspapers, careers resources and a Manx collection (including the Hall Caine Collection). The library also offers a range of study skills workshops throughout the year.
The library includes different working areas; silent work areas for individual silent study, a quiet work area for individual study and a general work area where collaborative working and discussion are permitted. We also have a small room that can be booked by small groups or individuals for study. There is a dedicated study zone for students studying degree, degree-level and post-graduate courses.
Please show consideration for other library users and keep noise at an appropriate level. Drinks are permitted throughout the library (hot drinks must have a lid) and no hot food is allowed.
The library has computers located in all of the study areas and there are also group work computers when you can work collaboratively. We also now have chargers and power banks to loan and power sockets to work with laptops are available throughout the library. Printing, photocopying and scanning facilities are all available.
We now offer a Click and Collect service. Contact us with the book title and shelf mark. Books will be available to collect by 10am next working day. Please note books not collected within a week will be re-shelfed. The standard loan period for most items is three weeks but you can renew an item up to three times if no one else has reserved it. You can visit the library in person, phone or email us to renew an item. You will be charged a small fine for any books that are returned or renewed late. You can contact us by phone on 01624 648207 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
