General public

Members of the public are welcome to visit or join our campus-based libraries.

You can visit our libraries and browse our print based resources without a membership. You can also access some eResources through our walk-in access to eResources service. Additionally, you can use our photocopying service.

If you want to borrow books from our libraries you'll need to become a member.
