Explore UWS Library

UWS Library has an extensive collection of relevant resources that support learning, teaching and research. Each of our five campuses has its own library, and students can access resources held throughout the UWS Library network and online. We also have an Information Literacy Programme to support information skills development (see below).

Information Literacy Programme

We also have an Information Literacy Programme called #uwslibTalks for you. The aim of this is to give tools to support information skills across the University.

Find resources on everything from searches, referencing, plagiarism to ebooks and specialist databases.
