Frequently asked questions

Can I borrow books?

Yes! The main library is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm during the summer vacation, starting Tuesday 2nd June 2021.

We also have over 200,000 ebooks and have been busy buying lots more over the summer. More details are available here: Ebooks

Can I still request books?

Yes absolutely, we love receiving your requests and recommendations. Please use this form to suggest a new book, ebook, film or game: New item request form

How do I return my books/DVD’s/games?

We have a book drop box in the library foyer (ground floor) where you can return your books when you are next on campus. Just drop them in there and we will do the rest for you – there’s no need to use self-service.

I do most of my searching for articles via Google. Do you have anything that can help me find NUA’s resources?

You will probably notice that many websites will ask for money per article. NUA subscribe to a wide range of academic sources and everything is listed via our Discovery search. If you find you are still hitting a wall with your searches just email our main address library@nua.ac.uk and one of the Subject Librarians will help you.
