    The further from the ground floor you go the more quiet it tends to be. There's also a social area on blue 4 that's great for group work and discussions

    The library has the largest collection of electronic resources of any library in the UK. An amazing achievement. Hooray for digital services!

    It has the best group discussion room ever. Futuristic, classic and so damn comfortable.

    Lots of books. And vending machines usually give you two of everything you buy.

    Agree with previous comments - more computers are needed as students are too busy playing Farmville. Also, the printing facilities are outdated and inefficient, and a pain in the arse when busy.

    If you need to do some serious studying, get here at 9am on a Saturday. It's like a ghost town.

    One week loans don't exist anymore. You can borrow your books for a month and then extend that online.

    Staff tend to have have nothing better to do that tell you off drinking coffee in Blue G and insist you move to the mainly unclean cafe area
