As a Cardiff University alumni you're entitled to library membership.

Once you've joined as an alumni member you'll be able to borrow up to 6 items at any one time from our 1-week, 2-week and 4- week loan collections. To see more information about our services for members, visit our borrowing books page. You can also access some eResources through our walk-in access to eResources service. Additionally, you can use our photocopying service. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer access to our NHS libraries due to the nature of their locations.

First year of membership is free. £10 for annual renewals.
