Library Offsite Service | Blog

Welcome to all new students

The Offsite team and Leeds Beckett Library staff are here to help you! Here’s some information that you might find useful.


If you want to visit the Library, plus if you’ve graduated or are just about to start your studies

The Sheila Silver Library at Leeds Beckett City Campus will be closed for essential electrical maintenance on Sunday 26th August from 6am to 1pm, but apart from that, the Library remains open 24/7.


The new online Reading List system is now live!

Good news! The migration to our new online Reading List system is complete and has now gone live. It has a new look and feel but is still accessible via MyBeckett and the new system makes it easier to customise and navigate.


The MyBeckett upgrade is now complete!

Great news! The MyBeckett upgrade is now complete. It’s available in exactly the same way, with the same tabs, but with a new login screen and a fresher new look.


Just graduated? Some final reminders

We are moving our online reading lists to a new system which will have a new look and feel (but still accessible via MyBeckett) and make it easier to customise and navigate.

The Library remains open over the summer months and staff are here to help you with support, enquiries and book loans.

Using other University Libraries

Did you know that you can visit other University libraries closer to home? The majority of university libraries in the UK and Ireland belong to a reciprocal borrowing scheme called SCONULAccess.
