Your gateway to a wide range of online information resources
Library Services supports students in getting the most from their studies with The Open University.
The online library provides students worldwide with access to trusted, quality online library resources such as journals, ebooks and other academic resources to support their studies. One of our aims is to help students study successfully and develop skills valued by employers. Through interactive tutorials and a range of online training sessions students learn more about finding, exploring, and interacting with resources.
Open University Library Services also supports the learning, teaching, research and personal development of members of staff.
Some key areas of support are:
Providing students and staff with help and support about using and finding library resources and services seven days a week
Providing services and facilities dedicated to researchers' information needs.
Providing support with using physical and online resources.
Providing training sessions so that students, staff and researchers can get the most out of online Library resources.
