What’s new for 22 -23

  • All our centres are currently going through some level of refurbishment to create welcoming, modern and exciting new spaces for our students to use.
  • In addition to this, we have updated our Library search facility to a new and exciting SmartSearch platform that makes searching easier and access to resources seamless with help guides and a new Library blog coming soon ...
  • We will now be able to deliver online information sessions as well as in person classroom sessions to ensure all our students get the full benefit of knowing what’s ‘out there’ to support studies.
  • We have subscribed to over 900 new Nursing eBook titles.
  • We have also purchased an array of subject specific eBooks and hard copies and will promote these titles on our new Library platform.

All students can automatically access our services and information about all our services is available from the Library Services Dashboard on the MyKelvin App.
