All students and members of staff automatically become members of our libraries when they receive their University Card.

We also welcome:

  • individuals who have a formal association with the University but do not have a staff contract who can use their Associate University Card
  • students and staff from other Universities in the UK and Ireland who have joined the SCONUL Access Scheme
  • alumni, members of the public and corporate organisations who have registered for external membership

External membership allows you to reserve and borrow books:

  • you may borrow up to 12 books
  • you cannot access the interlibrary loan service or most electronic information services because of licence restrictions
