We offer a number of services for students, staff and visitors. We can help you to find the items you need, even if they’re not in our libraries, and can support staff with reading lists and teaching.

Bookable study space
The Edward Boyle Library and Laidlaw Library are now open for study, with bookable study spaces available for University of Leeds staff and students, and NHS members. If you are able to study from home, please stay at home and do not travel to campus.
Can't find it
If you can’t find the items you need, we can help. You can request items on loan or from our stores as well as from other libraries outside Leeds through Document Supply.
We help you to submit reading lists and make items available for students, and support teaching through integrated academic skills sessions and resources.
