Find out about our different libraries and collections in Exeter and Cornwall.


There are a number of libraries across our Exeter and Cornwall campuses, offering core services for your learning. Your UniCard is also your Library card, so once you have received your UniCard and registered with the University you can start borrowing straight away.

The Forum Library on Streatham campus in Exeter and the Exchange Library on the Penryn Campus are both open 24/7, so you can use our spaces to study at the times most convenient to you. In addition many of our resources - such as books, journals, reference works, newspapers and research databases - are available online so that you can study wherever and whenever you like. Please note that our electronic resources need a login, which you will be given shortly before you arrive at the University.

Our staff are here to help you with all aspects of using library resources and facilities, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Watch this great presentation about what's in the Forum Library to get you started.

If you have completed a research degree at Exeter, or are due to complete one shortly, a copy of your final thesis/dissertation will need to be submitted to the institutional repository (ORE) prior to the award of your degree.

Please read the E-Theses FAQ and E-Theses Submission Guide carefully for details on the registration and deposit process.

We are here to support you in your studies, so please always ask if you need help with using the library or its resources.

The first person to go to is your Subject Librarian, who is a specialist in finding information in your subject area. You can talk with them face to face by making an appointment, or you can have a chat over the phone or by email.

The Library offers a range of services to help you find resources and to stay on top of your research whilst it's in progress.

These include help with finding resources for your literature review,  advice on using other libraries, details of current awareness services, help with managing your references and even a personalised deskside training service, tailored to your needs.
