What CAN I access?

 

Books

  • You can borrow up to 4 books using the self-service machines.
  • All books are issued for 2 weeks and automatically renewed if not required by another user.
  • Books will not be renewed if the book is reserved by another user and you will receive an email to explain this.
  • Fines will be applied for late return.  

Online journals

  • Most of our e-resources are paid for and licensed for current students and staff only and therefore we are unable to make these available to Alumni.  However, you may find a number of online journals and other online information has been made available to the general public.  The free online resources tab offers some suggestions.
