Services for students on distance taught
Last updated on 6/28/2016 Print this page
We provide a range of services to enable students on distance
taught courses to make the most of the Library. These pages are
designed to answer some of your queries and to help you make the
most of the services and resources available to you.
Distance-taught students visiting the Library in person will
need to bring their valid student card.
Opening times vary during vacations so always check the opening
times before your visit.
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
Students living in the UK or Ireland may request up to 4 books
per year to be posted to their home address. If your books
have not been requested by another customer you may renew
them yourself via the Library catalogue, by email or by phoning the
Library, telephone number 01482 465440.
You will be responsible for paying the postal charges for
returning the book to the Library. Fines will be charged for the
late return of books and for loss or damage. We recommend that you
use a secure and traceable method of returning books by post; such
as recorded delivery. We regret that we are unable to post books to
students outside the UK and Ireland.
Please submit your request by phone, email or via the postal
loan request form
Supply of journal articles or book chapters
The Inter Library Loan service can supply copies of
journal articles or chapters of books, either from our own library
or from the British Library. Students on distance-taught courses
are allowed 10 requests each year.
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.
