this is a test.

Prospective visitors should be aware that there will be no walk-in access for visitors at De Montfort University’s Kimberlin Library from Friday 30th March – Friday 11th May inclusive.

Additionally, no membership cards will be created for new external library users from Friday 30th March – Friday 11th May inclusive.
This will restrict access to this library from members of the public, students from local colleges / 6th Forms and SCONUL users from other universities. Library access by external members who have already had a library card made up is unaffected. Access to the Archives is also unaffected.
This restriction is intended to cap external use of our Kimberlin Library during a time of peak demand by our own student body, when study space is at a premium.

Use Summon Search to find books, e-books, journals, full-text articles and more from the Library all in one go.
Use the Library Catalogue to search for books, journals, cds, videos and software in the De Montfort University libraries. You can also renew loans and check the progress of reservations.
Use Library site to search for opening times, location and other information about the Kimberlin Library.
Use DORA to search for conference papers, books, book chapters, and other material available in a digital form.
Use Archives search for thousands of the UK's archive collections. Representing nearly 300 institutions across the country, the Archives Hub is an effective way to discover unique and often little-known sources to support your research.
Use Guides to search for details of tutorials, workshops, events, online guides and contacts. Plus, links to subject resources to help improve your academic work.
