 Library mission statement and values

The mission of the Library is to help our students and staff have the best possible experience in their learning and research

We actively collaborate with students and staff to create and deliver the spaces, collections and services that they need for learning and research. We work together with partners and organisations that reflect our values to engage with our wider communities.

We take a respectful and kind approach to working with our colleagues to deliver the services and content that enhances the learning experience of our students, the activities of our researchers and engagement of our wider community.

We demonstrate an inclusive approach to delivering accessible and sustainable resources and spaces for our community.

We design and deliver our services with integrity, actively seeking input into our decision-making and always ensuring everyone who use us is treated fairly with dignity and respect.

We have the courage to disrupt the conventional view of an academic library through innovative practice and experimental design.

For details of services in the Library, including borrowing information, see our Using the Library pages. For information about the resources for your subject online see our guides and support pages.
