Welcome to the University of Southampton Library!
The Library has five different sites.
University students and staff are entitled to use the full range of specialist collections, service and facilities each site.
Your University ID card is also your Library card so you can use the Library from day one.
Help is available through our Libguides pages, in the Library or via chat.
Ask us if you need further information... We are here to support your studies and your research.
If you are not a member of the University further information can be found here on our membership page.
WebCat is our traditional Library Catalogue, useful for searching for books and electronic books (ebooks) held by the Library. Our helpguides below display best in Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari.
