There are over one hundred libraries within the University. If you are a student you will have access to many subject libraries as well as the main University Library. You will also be a member of your college library, which is for college members only.
Students and staff will usually need their blue University card to access and borrow items from libraries. Contact the relevant library directly to check whether you are eligible to register to borrow from a library.
