New to the Library?
Follow our 5 tips to get started...
1. Campus Card - Carry your Durham University campus card when visiting all Library sites. You will need your campus card to enter the Bill Bryson Library.
2. Discover - Find a book using our online catalogue, Discover. Simply type in some words from the title, a topic or an author to get started. Then, make a note of the shelfmark and collect it from the shelves. Use Discover to access and search online resources, including journals, e-books and databases with your CIS username and password.
3. Borrow - Borrow an item using our self-service borrowing machines. Always check your receipt for the date your item is due back.
4. Your library account - Log on to your library account to renew your items, check return dates and pay charges. Check your Durham University email regularly for messages from the Library. If a book you have borrowed is needed by another student you will receive an email.
