Services available to alumni

Library Services will provide reference access to its print material. Pressure on resources means that we are unable to offer borrowing facilities. This access is for personal use only and not for commercial purposes.

Photocopying facilities are available upon purchase of a copy card, and items may be copied subject to copyright legislation.

Library Services is unable to offer access to computing facilities but access to a limited number of e-resources are available via the Walk in Access scheme. 

Walk In Access (WIA) to eResources

WIA gives visitors access to a limited range of Library Services' online services (also known as electronic resources) where licences permit. Library Services' online services include eBooks, eJournals and research databases. Users may consult eJournals, eBooks and databases available to walk-in access users via any PC in the Library (apart from the catalogues) using a temporary login. Users need to register for this service each time they want to use it.

Open Access resources

Open Access (OA) resources are free of most licensing restrictions. OA research articles therefore, unlike those in conventional subscription journals, are free at the point of use to anyone with an internet connection without the need for any institutional login IDs and passwords.
