Finding Resources: Your Library Account

Your Library Account

Our user-friendly Library platform is available 24/7, enabling you to effortlessly manage your library account from any location. Simply log in to our platform to enjoy a range of convenient features:

  • Reserve print resources. Reserve resources to ensure item availability and bypass the need to physically browse the library shelves.
  • Track loaned items. Monitor the status and due date of materials currently loaned to you, ensuring prompt returns.
  • Explore loan history. Review your borrowing history to revisit past subjects and rediscover valuable resources.
  • Save and organize reading. Save and organize previous searches and bookmark items of interest to save time, manage your research materials and create personalized collections tailored to your needs.
  • Expand your resource pool. Can’t find something you need? Discovery allows you to submit resource requests. Through our interlibrary loan and stock suggestion services, we strive to broaden your access to an extensive range of academic resources, connecting you with the materials you require.

Ready to get started?

Access your library account hereAlternatively, when searching in Discovery, click "Sign in", located in the upper right corner of your screen. 

You will be prompted to “Select a service to sign into”:

  • If you are a student or staff member, click the second button (“University of Suffolk Staff and Students”)
  • If you are an external SCONUL, Alumni or Public member, click the first button (“External Library Users”).

You’ll need your student credentials (S number and password) to login. External members should refer to their membership approval email for further guidance.

Please note: Students not based at our Ipswich campus or local partner colleges (West Suffolk College, East Coast College, or Suffolk New College) do not have print borrowing rights and therefore do not have library accounts.  

Don't worry, you still have access to all our digital resources. Simply search Discovery and provide your student credentials at the point of access!
