Members of the public are welcome to visit or join our campus-based libraries.
You can visit most of our libraries and browse our print based resources without a membership. Check the access arrangements to each library on our Locations and opening hours page. You can also access some eResources through our walk-in access to eResources service. Additionally, you can use our photocopying service.
