Getting Started using the Library

The best place to start searching for resources for your course is your reading list and LibrarySearch.

Your online reading list can be found via your course Moodle. Here is a short video with instructions on how to access and use your reading list.

Links to digital resources are available from here so may require your Kent Login to access them.

For more information on library services including how to borrow, make reservations, checking your library account etc, please see our full list of library guides



We have a large collection of books in the library for mathematics, statistics and actuarial science as well as related topics in computing, finance and data science. 

As well as using LibrarySearch to find specific titles you may want to browse topics areas on the library shelves. You can use the library map to locate broad subject areas.

The first two letters of a classmark identify the topic within your discipline. You can look for these on end of our shelving to find an area to browse.

Finding books outside of the Templeman Library

There may well be an occasion where you are searching for a book title, and find it’s not available in the Templeman Library. Alternatively, you may be researching a topic from a specific angle and would like to see if there are any other book titles available in the field.

The resources listed below, allow you to extend you book searching outside of the Templeman Library to other Higher Education institutions and national holding libraries.

Use these in conjunction with the SCONUL process to see if HE Libraries near to your home have the book for reference use, or to request via our Document Delivery Service.
