Library Services

Your gateway to a wide range of online information resources

Hello to all our new and returning students!

Home News Hello to all our new and returning students!

Welcome to a new academic year OU students! The team here at the OU Library is looking forward to helping you with your studies – whether you’re brand new to the OU, or are taking the next step towards completing your degree.

Keep up to date with what we’re up to on our Facebook and Twitter pages where you will find fun stuff, facts and tips on resources and services for supporting your studies! Over the next two weeks we’ll be showing you all of the different ways that the online library is there to help you throughout your studies – including a short video series with OU librarians, Associate Lecturers and students.

We're also participating in two live events, so mark your calendars!

Monday, 28 September at 11:40 - Librarians will join the Student Hub Live (re)Freshers Orientation at 11:40. We’ll be providing information on where you can find library resources for your studies and how to join our Library training sessions, as well as dishing out some helpful tips on referencing!

Monday, 5 October at 12:00 - Have your Lunch with a Librarian! Join us at 12pm where you’ll have the chance to ask any questions you may have about the library, whilst tucking into your lunch with us! Whether you want an introduction to the library or recommendations for a particular subject, we can help. We can’t give you lunch – but we can give you answers! Join us via Microsoft Teams.

Lunch with the Library event 5 October at noon
