Accessing library resources

You will use your Arden Office 365 login credentials to access the resources available through the Library. Your Arden Office 365 details along with details on how to recover your password have been supplied in an email when you registered for your programme of study. If you have not received this email or require assistance with your Office 365 credentials, please contact help@arden.ac.uk and a member of the IT team will be happy to assist.  

About the Library

Getting Started

You will find a wide range of resources to explore in the Library Portal and you will utilise these at different stages of your studies. We recommend that you get started with the Library Portal by exploring the Subject Guide for your area of study and by accessing your BibliU account using your Arden Office 365 email address and password. BibliU is our new eBook platform which provides individual access to many of the key texts you will use on your programme of study.  Take a look at this  useful video on some of the key features of BibliU.

English Language Hub

Getting Started

If English is not your first language then we are here to help! We recognise that studying in a second language can be challenging and so this dedicated team of patient, kind, and friendly English language Lecturers will guide and support you with the academic English skills you will need for university-level study. We currently offer mini modules, tutorials, workshops and self-study resources.

The English Language Hub area of the Library portal is COMING SOON.
