Library staff continue to be committed to providing excellent services even during the current public health challenges. As such, all library facilities will be provided “online only” until further notice. You can find links to resources that will be of help as we temporarily provide services online below:

The Library is open six days a week. It consists of digital screens in all study rooms, computers, WiFi and knowledgeable, supportive and experienced staff to provide support. All computers at Hornsey are equipped with a range of useful software to assist students with their needs or you can choose to use your own devices with our free, open and reliable Wi-Fi.
And when you're not on campus, you can still access a range of library services online, wherever you are in the world.
Students are encouraged to view the library induction presentation and familiarise themselves with borrowing, renewing procedures and other services.
Hornsey consists of three types of study spaces:
Group Study Spaces: This is designed for group work, though please be aware of your noise level and how this may affect other users. This space is in high demand and should be used for studying rather than socialising. Food and drinks are prohibited in the library. If you need to move equipment, please ensure it is returned to its original position when you have finished.
Silent Study Spaces: This is designed for individual silent study. This space should be used by those who want to work alone and is not for collaborative study. Phones should be turned off or switched to silent while you are in premises. No foods and drinks are allowed except water in the space.
Open Study Spaces: This is designed for those who would like to use the room for study only without using library materials.
The Hornsey Library is a very conducive environment for silent study. It is well stocked with resources to keep me up to speed on all my tasks and assignments.
Hornsey Library is located opposite to the Archway Building and next to the Cafeteria.
08:00 – 20:00

Note: During vacations, the Library opens at 8:30 AM and closes at 5:00 PM from Monday to Friday. Saturday is closed.
You MUST also bring your Student ID card to access library resources.
Library subject guides
There is a library subject guide for each subject taught at the University. Each guide provides an overview of the resources available for the subject, as well as information on other services and facilities available to you.
Library rules and regulations
Library rules and regulations set out the guidelines for the use of the library and its resources.
The Library induction presentation provides an explanation of all the services available to you, such as borrowing, renewing, requesting and how to use e-resources. E-resources workshops are available upon request. For more information contact the library staff.
Use Library Search (https://mdx.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?vid=44MUN_INST:mauritius) to find and access quality academic resources. It's a great starting point for your research.
The Library spends over a million pounds each year on teaching and research resources. Most of these are now electronic. Please use the links below to find the resources you need.
If none of our collections contain what you need, we can use our connections to academic libraries worldwide to get what you need. For more information see our Inter-Library Loans page.
Note: Students are advised to log into MyUniHub before accessing any e-resources. For more details you may contact library staff on firstname.lastname@example.org
You will need to present your student ID to borrow items from the library. Each item you borrow has a designated loan period of 2, 7, 14 or 28 days.
Some library material is available for reference use only in the library. These items are clearly marked with a 'reference' sticker on the spine of the book.
Undergraduate students can borrow a maximum of two books and postgraduate students a maximum of three books at a time.
Note: Students who have overdue items will not be allowed to borrow other items until the overdue items are returned.
Any book you borrow will now be automatically renewed (except 2 days loan and reference items) for a maximum two times though you must return items if they have been requested by someone else.
Borrowers will be unable to renew if:
