Services for part-time and distance taught students

We provide a range of services to enable part-time and distance taught students to make the most of the Library.

Distance-taught students visiting the Library in person will need to bring their valid student card.

Registration

You do not need to register separately with the Library. Your student card is also your Library card. Keep your card with you at all times as you may need to refer to the ID number on the card when contacting the Library by phone, email or via the Internet. You will also need your student card if you visit the Library in person.

Postal loans

Students living in the UK or Ireland may request up to 4 books per year to be posted to their home address. We are unable to post books to students outside the UK and Ireland.

Students will be responsible for paying the postal charges for returning the books to the Library. It is recommended that your use a secure and traceable method of returning books by post; such as recorded delivery.

Photocopy request service

Students on part-time certificate and degree courses are allowed four free requests each year of photocopies of or extracts from books in stock at the BJL.

UK Copyright Laws restricts photocopying to no more than one chapter of a book or 10% of the whole book, whichever is greater and not more than one article from a single issue of a journal for each user.

You will need to complete an Inter-Library Request Form for each item.

Supply of journal articles or book chapters

Students are allowed 10 requests per year of copies of journal articles or chapters of books, either from our own library or from the British Library.

Complete an Inter-Library Request Form for each item, providing all the information requested.

If you wish to use the service please complete the appropriate form found on the Inter Library Loan page.  This is a legal requirement under the UK 1988 Copyright Act.  In order to avoid delay, please provide all the information requested.
