A Guide to the University Library for International Students Welcome to your University Library!

How the Library works To enter the library you will need your student card, which is also your library card. This also contains your account ID which you will need for logging onto the University computers. How to find things When searching for information the best place to start is by using the Library Search Engine ‘Find it at Lincoln’. This can be accessed from the main library page (http://library.lincoln.ac.uk/) You will be able to find a number of print and electronic resources. Just try typing a key word of the subject area you are searching for and the results will be displayed. Remember that you will need to make a note of the numbers and the letters of the print items (e.g.658.hor) to find the items on the shelves.
