Online Library


You will receive an email from Student Announcements (at your @my.ohecampus email address) telling you to register for the University's Online Library before the end of your first week of study.

You will not be able to register for the Online Library using the process described below until you have received this email.


Students on the University of Liverpool's online postgraduate programmes benefit from access to an extensive Online Library. This page tells you how to register for the Online Library, where to get support if you have problems registering, and the resources available to get you up-and-running using the Online Library.

Laureate LENS (which you use to access your classrooms and email, the Student Community, and your administrative details) is run by Laureate Online Education, as part of their partnership with the University of Liverpool.

The Online Library is run by the University of Liverpool. This means that you have to use a different log-in to access the Online Library than the log-in you use for accessing Laureate LENS, and that you will need to contact a different team if you need support in using the Online Library; don't worry though, this is all explained below.

You will not be set any assignments that require you to use the Online Library until you have been invited to register, but in the second week of your studies you will be set assignments that require you to use the Online Library, so you should register as soon as possible after receiving the email. A downloadable version of this page is available here.
