English Faculty Library Services: Library facilities and rules


Wifi is available throughout the library via UniOfCam or Eduroam.

To connect to UniOfCam you will need your Raven log-in and password. To connect via Eduroam (which has slightly better coverage in the library) you will need to collect a UIS token. Details on how to do this are available via the University Information Services website. You can also use Eduroam to connect to wifi when visiting any other participating institutions in the UK or abroad.

Printing, photocopying and scanning

There are a small number of computers in the Computer Room and by the ASNC books on the first floor. There are also several printers (both colour and black and white), and a photocopier and scanner in the Computer Room. We also have two designated PCs for accessing electronic legal deposit material.

Credit for printing, photocopying and scanning has to be purchased online in advance from the University's DS-Print website.


Key facts

All University members are automatically registered with the English Faculty Library and can borrow straight away.

Every item in our collection falls into one of three categories:

  • Normal loan, the majority of our books, which will renew automatically until you leave the University, unless someone else requests them
  • Short loan, including all DVDs, which can be borrowed for 4 days and can't be renewed
  • Reference books, which can only be used in the library

We normally charge fines of 50p per item per day (excluding weekends), but in 2021-2022, all fines will be waived unless you have lost a book or DVD. If this happens, please contact us by email to discuss what to do next.

We're very happy for you to recommend books for us to buy. You can tell us how quickly you need the book, and we'll keep you informed about its progress.


Books should be checked out on the library self-issue machine or at the issue desk. (If you are using the Click & Collect service then the books are already issued on your account.)

You should not vandalise the books (e.g. marking the text in pencil).

For 2021-2022, please wear a face covering (unless you have a medical exemption) while in the library.
