123 for Student-Led Purchasing

The Library’s Student-Led Purchasing scheme is back for the new academic year. There are a wealth of new titles for you to access  on 123Library full-text 24/7 across a range of subjects.

The Library will buy those titles most used by students. So get reading and make sure titles you need are bought and available for you! The current selection of full-text titles on 123Library is available until early January 2017, after which we’ll buy the most used titles. Then, we’ll give you access to more selections of great titles full-text 24/7 for the rest of the academic year. If you think we should buy any of titles you’re using on 123Library email suggestbk@bucks.ac.uk with your suggestions.

Your Library, Your Say.



E4Libraries Award Again for Bucks New University Libraries

The Library at Bucks is very proud to announce that it has been re-accredited with its e4libraries award by BIC (Book Industry Communication). What this means for our students is that we continue to be acknowledged for our optimum use of technology in book and e-book acquisition, library catalogue management and book circulation. Even Bruce the Badger enjoys making use of all this technology to take his books out!

With a select number of libraries receiving this award, it shows our commitment to providing access to learning resources in the most efficient way possible for our students (and badgers!). For details of the accreditation scheme see here.
