Help within our Library Spaces

During staffed hours, Library staff are at hand at our information points in the Kimberlin Library and the Hugh Aston Law Library.

Library staff also rove throughout the libraries. They wear library lanyards so you can identify them and ask them for any help or directions you need.       

For times when staff are available see here.

Help online and via telephone

For help when you are outside the Library, you can contact us via our:

  • JustAsk LibChat service available 24/7.
  • JustAsk email service available during staffed hours. We aim to respond to enquiries submitted via the Just Ask form within 24 hours, although it is usually much quicker.
  • JustAsk telephone 0116 257 7042 answered 09.00-19.30 (Mon - Fri) and 11.00-17.00 (Sat / Sun)
