Study Skills

Watch this video to see how to find books and articles from your course reading lists. Northumbria University’s Skills Plus website has excellent tutorials on independent study, writing assignments and thinking critically.



Study space and PCs

There is study space in all of the Trust’s libraries, and PCs you can use with your Trust ID and password.  To use the Libraries in the evenings or weekends, ask us and we will sort out access for you.


Ask for help

If you need help to find any books, articles or information, just ask one of the library staff.  We know how to track down that book or piece of information you need for your studies and would love to help you find it.
