New Library Discovery Service

From Monday 9th January 2023

Our new library discovery service is now live.

This is available via a search box on our home page.


Full Text Access

While you will be able to search for print items in the usual way, there will be some interruption to delivery of full text while providers switch from one link resolver to the other. Unfortunately, this work needs to be done in the live environment post go-live.

We have contacted our providers, and await them updating our link resolver details to the new system. We are monitoring this and testing off campus access to eresources as they migrate to the new link resolver.

You can find the latest update on e-resources that have been checked as available here.

If you cannot access the full text articles you want in the new system yet, as that provider has not switched over to the new system, then please use the EDS system instead in the meantime.

Please send details of any e-resources access issues to as usual including e-resource details and your contact details.

New Students - Setting up IT accounts

Once you have completed your enrolment, you will be sent an email with your LSBU email address, username and a temporary password. You must change that password before you can access your accounts.

Follow the instructions on our Password webpage.

If you have not yet received your email address and temporary password or it does not work, please visit our help desk in the library on all campuses or get in touch with us via MyAccount, live chat or telephone.

Website Links

This issue has now been resolved.

Some links from external sites were returning an error message. These sites include Moodle, MyAccount, LSBU main website, help sheets and some shortcuts or bookmarks.

If you come across any links to our website that still do not work, we would be grateful if you could let us know by completing the Website feedback form, which is also available in our footer.
