Metanoia Institute Library Service-December Update Click-and-Collect

Updated on Thursday 3rd December

Following the easing of some lockdown restrictions, we are able to resume the ‘click-and-collect’ service for the Metanoia Institute library.  Please see the information below about access to library resources and the ordering and return of books:

Ordering and reserving books for collection from North Common Road:

  • We are able to offer an in-person pick-up and drop-off of books on Mondays and Tuesdays during the term time only, between the hours of 12-2pm or 3-4pm.
  • Please email the library at library@metanoia.ac.uk with details of the items you wish to reserve. 
  • You will be notified by the librarians when items are available and when they can be collected. 
  • Unfortunately there can be no access to the library, as browsing is prohibited at this time.
  • Reserved books will be ready for your collection on the agreed day/time.
  • Books may be returned via the book-bin, or by post.
  • The maximum loan period is one month, and only two books may be reserved at one time.
  • To keep staff and students safe, librarians are unable to leave items at reception to be collected at times other than the above. 

A quick way to obtain what you are looking for:

  • You may also request for the librarians to email scans of articles from our library print stock.
  • Email library@metanoia.ac.uk

Returning items 

  • Items can be returned in person to the book bin in the porch at 13 North Common Road.  To avoid virus transmission, returned items will be quarantined for 72 hours. 
  • Books returned this way will be removed from library records and be made available for loan after this period. 
  • Items can also be returned by post/ courier.  Please keep any information relating to posting/ courier transactions until you are informed by the library that the item has been cleared from your account. 

 Online Resources

The online resources (databases, journal and e-book packages) are accessible from the Learning Resources course on Moodle. The links and login details to use are listed in the Online Resources section.


  • You will find a list of all e-books currently available at Metanoia Institute within the resources section. Please be aware that e-book availability may change during the academic year, so please do revisit the site.
  • Direct links to the e-books are on the Library catalogue and can be found by a search for "Electronic Resource". There is a link to the main VLeBooks website on the Learning Resources area of Moodle with instructions on how to search the catalogue for e-books. Should you wish to use an e-book, please email the Library requesting an individual VLeBooks login (library@menanoia.ac.uk).

Please note – our librarians may be able to access books via RNIB Bookshare for students with RAPS.  Please do contact either Ade Banjoko (ade.banjoko@metanoia.ac.uk) or the library for further information.
