Due to essential system maintenance The Financial Markets Lab on the first floor of Sheppard Library will open intermittently during the above two week period. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
From 1 July 2016, written library overdue reminder letters will be replaced with SMS text reminders.
If you would like to receive overdue reminder messages, please ensure that the University has a record of your current mobile number.
We will continue to send the email reminders, so please remember to check your University email account regularly.
From this summer we will be making more books available for longer loan. We will have 3 main book statuses:
Reference books – for use in the library only – will have a [REFERENCE] label.
7 day loan – books in high demand – will have a [7 DAY LOAN] label.
All other books are for 28 day loan – will have no label.
More longer loan books = fewer renewals and lower charges
All students are required to use their valid Middlesex ID in order to gain access to UniHelp and the Sheppard Library. For full details about this and what to do if you have lost or forgotten your card please read more here.
There are over 900 Windows 7 PCs and Macs across campus and these are available in a number of buildings including the Sheppard Library, Library@Williams, College and Grove. While many of these machines can be used when not timetabled for teaching, others are open for general access. In order to make it easier for you to see what's available, a new service has been developed to show you real-time desktop PC and Mac availability information.
At present, this service shows computer availability for the Sheppard library and Royal Free, but we plan to roll it out across campus in due course.
The web page is available on UniHub and via the Library mobile app: http://avail.mdx.ac.uk
