Distance Learners: Welcome

Information on the services and facilities available which may be of particular interest to Distance Learning students


Welcome to the Library and Learing Services of De Montfort University.  We hope that this guide will help you make the most of the library services available to you, whether remotely or on campus.

In addition to this guide, you should also refer to the Libguide relevant to your subject of study, as that guide will cover the use of databases, shelfmarks of book stock, etc. which this guide cannot cover in depth.
