Important - Change to University of Roehampton Library Opening Hours
We treat your well-being and the health of our community extremely seriously. Following on from the Vice-Chancellor’s message concerning the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that the safest and best way forward for the time being is to have online library services only.
The Library building is closed - our online Library Anywhere is fully available.
Any e-resources that you usually access will continue to be available as usual, and you can contact the Library by email or chat Monday to Friday, 9 am to 5 pm.
You can find more information and support for University of Roehampton students, staff and people in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19) on the dedicated University webpage.
For DawsonEra ebooks use your UR login. If you experience any problems accessing the online databases or ebooks please refer to the 'Partnership access instructions for databases and ebooks' pdf below.
Use qa + student number (e.g. qas00054321) for the username and Qa + your DOB eight digits (e.g. Qa01121984) for the password; use qahigher for the Organisation ID if required. If you experience problems accessing VLeBooks this may be caused by your browser (Chrome, Mozilla, Safari or similar) storing your University of Roehampton login used for accessing academic databases. The easiest way to resolve this is to use a different browser for accessing ebooks at www.vlebooks.com. Copy this address to the address bar of another browser, for example, Internet Explorer or Edge, or any other (Chrome, Mozilla, Safari etc.) different to the one you have been using so far. If you experience any other problems accessing VLeBooks please refer to the 'VLeBooks access guide' PDF below.
Please use your campus library in Birmingham, London (Rosebery Avenue) or Manchester. To search for those books, use the library catalogue. To manage your library account, you can download the myCirqa app for iPhones and Android devices. To login, search for Roehampton, choose your campus (Birmingham, London or Manchester), then use your students number for the ID and your date of birth (DDMMYY) – for the PIN.
