About My Login

You should use your regular University Login username (e.g. ab1 or abc101) and password to login to the Library website, access e-resources or where otherwise required (on this website). This is the same login used to access university PCs.

Your Self-Service Password

To use the Library's self-service machines you'll need to use a special password (as well as your student or staff ID card).

Students: Unless you agreed a different password on joining the library or have subsequently changed it, your self-service password is derived from the day and month of your date of birth. So, if your DOB is 17 August your password will be 1708. You can change your password at any time by logging in to the Library and selecting the "My Account". If you are a returning student your password should not have changed.

Staff: You will normally receive your password when you register with us. New staff need to register with the Library to obtain a password in person. Staff who have a query regarding their library barcode number/password should contact us in either online, by phone or in person.


If you are stuck with a problem or have any other questions about logging in please contact us via our online enquiry service and we will deal with it quickly.
