Report to any Leeds University Library reception desk during core hours. You will be issued with a reference-only ticket.

Library access is restricted to staff and students of the University of Leeds during revision weeks and exam periods; two weeks in January and five weeks in May.

You may use the Library's book collections, periodicals, and photocopying facilities. You will not be able to borrow items.
