With nearly 16,000 students sharing resources, the University aims to update materials continually to ensure the best access to information. Book prices and the amount of information available increase substantially each year and investment in electronic resources is also needed to provide instant access to information.
Funds given by alumni continue to be channelled into the acquisition of new resources including eBooks which make it possible for students to browse titles from the widest range of publishers and choose those which they find useful.
