  • Library and archive staff welcome you to the Institute of Education.
  • You will find our web pages from the library link on the IOE home page. There are quick links to the most popular resources on the right hand side of the page, including how to contact the library.
  • When you enrol as a student at the IOE you will receive a computer username and password and a library PIN. You will need the username and password to log on to the network on site or remotely via the portal. This is also the username and password you need to access the library’s collection of electronic resources including ebooks and ejournals. The getting started guide provides information about this, and other useful information about your email address, the wireless network and so on. You will need the PIN to manage your library account, including reservations and renewals. We also encourage you to explore the library, both in person and online.
  • Our Libguides and LibAnswers provide a full range of information and support. These pages are mobile friendly so you can use them on most devices. You will find help with making full use of the excellent services and resources available to you via the library.
  • The library has the largest collection of education resources in Europe. We collect everything published on Education in the UK, and a significant amount of material from other countries in our international and comparative collection. There is also a large collection of school level material for trainee teachers to use in the classroom, and 23 Special Collections. The Archives collections are unique in the subject area. There are 130 deposited archives, containing historical resources on education, and influential organisations and individuals working in the field. It covers all levels of education, and all settings.
  • You can access a huge amount of electronic resources too. We have a range of databases which can be used to search the contents of over 5000 journals. Wherever possible we purchase electronic books to support student learning. Have a look at the Institute’s own repository, IOE Eprints for the research output of IOE staff. We’ve also developed a new resource, the Digital Education Resource Archive (DERA) which provides permanent access to electronic government publications.
  • You can keep up to date with what’s new in the library by reading our blog, Newsam News, or following us on Twitter or via our Facebook page.
  • Whatever your needs, the library staff are here to help you. Contact our friendly and knowledgeable staff by coming in to the library, or by email, phone, text or via our website. We look forward to meeting you and hope you have a successful and enjoyable experience at the IOE.
