Help and support in the Library


Whether you have just started at the University of Plymouth, are just about to sit your finals, are a postgraduate student doing a literature review, or a member of staff, we can help. If it's your first time using the library or you have visited many times but are still anxious about coming in, don't worry. 

We can help with:

  • physical access
  • finding resources on Primo
  • finding books on the shelves (How do the numbers on the book spines work?)
  • finding your way around the building
  • printing
  • finding out where to go to for help
  • putting you in touch with other support facilities.

Other support:

  • Physical access
  • Books in alternative format
  • Equipment to help you in the Library
  • Software and technology to support your learning
  • Additional Library services

Library Buddy

If you are concerned about entering or navigating the library, we can arrange for a library buddy to meet you outside and come in with you. We can give you a quick (about 10 minute) introduction to the library and its resources. 

Come on your own, or with a friend or with a small group of colleagues.

To arrange a buddy you can email, call us on +44 (0) 1752 588588 - choose the student option, or chat with us.
