Sign Up

In order to access the full range of electronic resources and catalogue features for example eJournals and eBooks, you will first need to sign-up to the single sign-on service. You will need your 5-digit membership number and the email address you registered with the Library the first time you sign-up in order to verify your account and create a unique password. You will then need this password and your email address to sign-in on subsequent occasions.  Please follow the instructions here to sign-up for the first time. 

Membership card

Full and Associate members will receive a membership card and information on how to use the Library on their first visit to the Library. Please ensure that you bring your card with you whenever you visit the Library. You will need it to gain access into and out of the building and to borrow books and make use of other facilities.

Your membership card remains valid for the duration of your membership. Personal memberships are non-transferable and the Library may be used only by the person named on the membership card. Please report lost or stolen cards to Membership.
