Access to physical resources – books, journals, DVDs etc. – is available in the kimberlin and Law Libraries. Complementary to this access, our online resources – e-books, e-journals, databases, past exam papers, DORA (our institutional repository), Figshare (our data repository) and other digitised content – is available 24/7. Support in accessing our online resources is available from our Just Ask service, via email, libchat and telephone, as well as by personal visit.
As an equal opportunities service provider LLS seeks to give all students an equal chance of improving their academic performance but sometimes the publisher or supplier approach and/or format does not allow this to happen. LLS endeavours to reduce these barriers as far as possible.
To ensure our collections are supporting the institutional objectives our procurement will be viewed through the lens’ of UDL; digital (distance); accessibility; inclusiveness; decolonising DMU; UX research and design; 17 UN sustainable goals; continuous improvement; and staff and student well-being.
There will be multiple ways of accessing resources across disciplines and we endeavour to provide a broad-based collection covering all aspects of our disciplines while ensuring that we meet students’ needs through resource lists and inter-library loans where required.
