Library Helpdesk

You can ask any question at the Library Helpdesk and we will do our very best to help you. You can also contact us by phone, email or connect with us on social media.

We may need to refer you to another member of staff or department. Sometimes this means taking your details and getting back to you, but we will do this as quickly as we can.
