New Academic Staff: Welcome

Your library

This guide includes information and links to all Library and Student Support (LSS) services.

Your primary contact with LSS is your Subject Liaison Librarian.

You are automatically registered to use the Library. Your staff ID card is your library card.

Your Middlesex University login is all you need to access our electronic resources. 

If you are not able to find the required information in this guide, please:

Library Search

Use Library Search to find and access quality academic resources.


If we don't have something

If we don't have a journal paper or book you need then we get it from the British Library. This is free of charge for Research and Academic Staff. See our Inter library loans guide.

If you think we should buy a book for the library, tell us via the Suggest a book form for your campus.

If you want us to subscribe to a new journal (which can be expensive) please ask your Liaison Librarian.

Google Scholar search

Google Scholar searches world wide for scholarly papers.  Make sure you:

  • Set up Middlesex University as your library in Scholar Settings for free access to the Full Text.
  • Use Inter Library Loan service to get papers we don't have, free of charge.
  • Use Library Search if you need a quick search of the resources we have.
