If you are not a current student or staff member of the university, we can offer walk-in access to some electronic resources via a guest login. This enables you to view most eJournals, eBooks and databases that the University subscribes to. You first need to apply for a library card. Please check to see if you fall under the following membership categories. If you are a member of the public you can join the library as a visitor.  Applications and the walk-in access service is only available during staffed hours.

Our Library Catalogue is freely available and includes details of all of our eJournals and eBooks, however access requires a login.

The following online resources are not available to walk-in users/non members of the university due to licensing restrictions:

  • American Association for Cancer Research e-journals
  • Elsevier MDL DiscoveryGate databases and major reference works
  • Euromonitor Passport GMID
  • MarketLine Advantage
  • LexisNexis/Butterworths
  • Mintel market reports
  • Westlaw

Registered walk-in users can save from the Library's electronic resources to a USB and print, subject to copyright conditions and as long as this is for non-commercial use only ie. for private study or research.

Printing and scanning for any other use (internet web pages, personal emails, other documents) is only available for staff and students as this requires a username and password to access the University network.

Visitors should access the public library service if they require access to printing or scanning facilities.

Subject to copyright conditions, visitors can photocopy in the Library by purchasing a guest card and adding credits.
