Quiet study during revision and exams

Please be considerate to your fellow students during the revision and exam period by keeping noise to a minimum in the Library’s study areas on Levels 1, 3, 4 and 5.

Quiet study space is very popular at this time of year. We have more than 1,400 individual study spaces across all floors of the Library. Whilst these remain available for drop in use, we also have some bookable group work rooms for those who would like to study together. You can book these spaces in advance through Libcal.

To find out more about bookable (and non-bookable) spaces, both on and off campus, go to: Where you can study on campus and in the city.

Using e-books during the assessment period? Please remember to sign out or close your browser when finished, otherwise you might lock access for other readers if there are limits on how many can access the e-book at the same time.

You may find the following Library resources helpful:

  1. Find Past exam papers
    Browse and access past papers via our online database.
  2. Take a break!
    Taking a break can help improve memory, increase your energy, reduces stress, improve health, plus boost your performance and creativity. Keep an eye out for our ‘Take a break’ envelopes in the Library during revision week and the first week of exams.
  3. Managing exam stress and ‘Read Well’ themed reading lists
    We’ve created some themed reading lists of resources you might want to draw on for managing exam stress and reading for wellbeing. You’ll find a display on level 2 and can view the Skills and Wellbeing list on our Library Lists system.

Finally, our colleagues at the Skills Centre have a great deal of support on offer via the Support to prepare you for exams webpage. This include guides, blogs, 1:1 appointments, the Be Well app and much more.

Good luck with your exams!
