Ask us – help in the library


We have a wide range of online resources to help our students and staff but there may be times when you need individual assistance. 
You can find our Library and Digital Support team at the Information desk on Level 1 as you enter the library. Our core hours are Monday to Friday 09:00-18:00 with a reduced service outside of these times.
We provide support for general library and IT enquiries, including help with:
  • accessing electronic and digital resources.
  • locating books on the shelves.
  • printing, copying and scanning.
  • connecting to the Wi-Fi (Eduroam).
  • your Library and print account.
  • password changes.
Please see our Student IT Support Policy for full details of the service we provide.

Finding books and articles

To find books, articles and gain access to databases you will need to use our Library Catalogue search tool called Primo. Our Library Guide provides more information and training on using Primo.

You can access Primo on any device by going to Primo.plymouth.ac.uk.

Find out how many books you can borrow, how to find them on the shelves and how to take them out on our borrowing page.
