Studying in your Library

We want you to enjoy studying in our library and learning spaces. To support your time here at DMU, we provide both a range of information resources and study spaces for individuals and groups.

We will:

  • create an environment in the library that meets your study needs
  • make available books, journals, and information resources
  • provide friendly and professional help
  • help develop your skills for independent lifelong learning
  • respond promptly to your comments and feedback

You can help by:

  • using study spaces as they are designated, for silent or group study
  • being mindful that library spaces are for study, not socialising
  • not smoking, vaping or using eScooters within our library spaces
  • treating each other and staff with courtesy and respect
  • taking good care of library materials, property and equipment
  • using our library lockers if you are leaving the library for an extended period of time
  • complying with copyright law.

Our Service Standards outline our commitment to delivering a high quality customer service. We would love to hear how you think we are doing, so please provide feedback here.
