Any eBooks and electronic resources need to be accessed through the Library website, using your University username and password. If you are having difficulties, please email us at and we can assist.

We can obtain books as inter-library loans for you, or purchase items with your Academic Liaison Librarian if relevant to the collection. For more information, find our webpage here.

Details on how to search for items and how to sign in and reserve items are found here. You will receive an email when your item is ready to be collected from the Hold shelf.

You will need your University ID card to borrow items from the library – Unfortunately we cannot issue items without it. We can reserve items for you to pick up when you have your card.

All lost property is taken to Glasney lodge at Penryn campus and main reception at Falmouth campus. Please check at these locations.

Both Falmouth and Penryn Campus libraries are operating on reduced opening hours due to the Covid-19 restrictions.  Our virtual help desk remains open Monday to Friday 9-9 and Saturday and Sunday 10-6 for email, phone or webchat.
