All of our resources are listed on the Locate library catalogue. Locate allows you to search for books, eBooks, journal articles and databases. By logging into your account you can also renew any items you have on loan and reserve items that are on loan to other readers.

Free eBook scheme

We understand that higher education is a big investment, so we have committed to offering an eBook scheme in partnership with BibliU to include core textbooks as part of your tuition fees.

Academic Writing Service

The Academic Writing Service aims to help you fulfil your potential by enabling you to successfully write and study independently while at CU Coventry. We can help advise and guide you on the important aspects of academic writing and skills, such as planning and structuring essays and reports, improving critical thinking and avoiding plagiarism by referencing correctly.

You can access the Academic Writing Service via open access drop-in sessions, bookable one-to-ones and Moodle, as well as some sessions in subject tutorials and even occasional workshops. To book a one-to-one or find out when a drop-in session is scheduled, contact the Customer Service Desk or email the service at
