What you need to know about library services

Library Click and Collect for PGTs

From Monday 17th August PGT students will be able to request print books from the David Wilson Library as part of the Library’s click and collect service. Requested items will be available for collection from the foyer in the David Wilson Library. Further details on how to place requests will be posted on the Library website shortly.

Bookable study space in the David Wilson Library for staff and PGRs

As part of the wider resumption of services from the Library, we are trialling bookable study spaces. This will be limited to part of the first floor of the David Wilson Library whilst we trial the service. You will not be able to browse print collections and there is currently no PC provision within the building. However, you will be able to bring your own devices and connect to the wireless network. Spaces can be booked via the Library website from Wednesday 19th August, with the first slots being available from Thursday 19th August. You will need your ID card to enter the Library and face masks must be worn in line with University guidance. Booking instructions will be published on the Library website next week

Resumption of postal loan services for distance learners

From Monday 17th August registered distance learners will be able to place postal loan requests for print books held in the David Wilson Library. This can be done in the usual way from Library Search on the Library homepage.

Some distance learners may already have books on loan which you may wish to return. For existing loans it is likely the returns labels will have expired. Over the coming weeks we will be sending out new returns labels to you so please wait until you receive these. If you have any concerns please email

Postal returns

For those unable to come to campus and return their books via the book drop at the front of the building the Library can now accept book returns by post. The Library’s postal address is:

David Wilson Library

University of Leicester

University Road



Existing distance learner students have a separate returns process and should wait until they have received new returns labels before sending books back to us. These will be sent to you over the coming weeks.
