The Lanchester Library re-opened to all University staff and students on Monday 3rd August 2020. We’ve missed you all and we look forward to welcoming you back and supporting your work and studies. We’ve had to make some changes to how we operate to ensure our spaces are as safe as possible so please read the information displayed in the tabs carefully.
If you have lost your card please report it to Access Control straight away. You can order a new card online. You will need to scroll right to the bottom of the page to the area for ordering replacement documents, ID cards are at the bottom of the list.
Unfortunately, we have had to suspend our visitor schemes including SCONUL and sixth form access schemes.
Click and Collect Coventry University has a huge collection of e-books and e-journals but there may still be some items that are only available in print. If you need a printed copy of a book, you can place a booking through the library online catalogue, Locate. Available 'on shelf' item requests will normally be ready for collection within 24 hours, items 'on loan to another user' - you will be notified once these items become available. You will be able to collect your requests from our collection area at the main entrance to the Library. Items will be held for a maximum of one week before being returned to the shelves. The LibGuide on click and collect gives more information on what to do. if you have a space booking you can also browse the shelves and borrow using self-service.
