Welcome to the Library

Books are just the beginning

Welcome to all new and returning students. We’re looking forward to meeting you! At the Library, we’re here to support you with your studies, so you can reach your full potential.

Over the next three weeks, we’ll show you how to get the most out of our services.

Kickstart your journey with us by checking out our Get Started webpages; they’ve got useful links to the sections of the Library website you’ll need in your first few weeks. For extra support online, you can also chat to our staff using the yellow Library Chat tab on the right-hand side of our webpages.

If you’re on campus, come and see us in the Main LibraryAlan Gilbert Learning Commons, or one of our site libraries. Our friendly staff will be on hand to answer any questions you might have, no matter how big or small (they’re the ones wearing purple so they’re super easy to spot). You can get a full introduction to using the Library at our Get Started Anytime drop in sessions.

Follow us on social media @UoMLibrary for live info and updates.
