We have no estimated date for when access to the library by the public or staff / students from other universities will restart. Our library will be operating at less than 50% occupancy for some time to come and until our usual occupancy levels resumes - at the point when we no longer need to socially distance in public buildings - we won't be able to offer study spaces or book loans to anyone other than our current staff and students and, until 1st October 2021, for our DMU alumni.
At this time, both Leicester City public libraries and Leicestershire public libraries have re-opened to visitors. They provide access to Access to Research which may be of use to you until our library re-opens.
Temporary access to the Kimberlin Library is being provided to DMU alumni during summer 2021, up until 30th September 2021.
This temporary access is to enable students graduating from DMU undergraduate courses during summer 2021 to access print resources ahead of DMU postgraduate study in the autumn term. Access for alumni will be withdrawn again from 1st October to enable the potential use of an online booking system by current DMU students and staff in the new academic year.
Holders of existing alumni cards will find that their cards work to allow library access and the loan of up to 4 items at a time. New applications by DMU alumni can be submitted using the webform below.
Alumni library cards are free for DMU alumni, and allow the loan of up to 4 items at a time, but do not provide IT access within our library, and do not provide access to other Library buildings on campus, such as the Law Library or Learning Zones. When available, these spaces are solely for access by our current DMU students and staff.
