General public

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.

If you want to borrow books from our libraries you'll need to become a member. To see more information about our services for members, see our information on borrowing books.

Membership options

Personal membership

Join us as a personal member to borrow books and request items.

There is an annual charge of £10 for personal membership. You can borrow up to 6 items at any one time from our 1-week, 2-week and 4-week collections.

How to join

To join as a personal member you will need to apply for a library card. Please complete our online membership form to join and use our libraries. Library staff will contact you when your card is ready to collect. Any payments can be made upon collection of your card, card payment only.
