Services for part-time and distance taught students

Services

The University Library offers a range of services for part-time and distance taught students. Your entitlement for these services depends on your student status (part-time or distance taught). Please see entitlement details below.

 

Library membership

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 books 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.

 

Copies of journal articles or book chapters

Students are allowed to request copies of journal articles or chapters of books. These will be provided in either an electronic PDF format, or a paper photocopy at the discretion of the Library. 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.

Complete an Inter-Library Request Form for each item, providing all the information requested to help avoid delays in the processing of your request.
