Borrowing Services

Library membership 

All St Mary's University students are automatically members of the University's library service. This provides numerous benefits throughout the course of your studies including access to: 

  • the library's physical book collection, with a borrowing allowance of up to 18 library items at a time.
  • unlimited access to the library's large e-resources collection using your University IT account
  • the study facilities in the library including bookable study spaces.
  • IT facilities in the library buildings, including desktop PCs, borrowable laptops and printing/scanning/photocopying. 


Once you have completed your studies, you are eligible for free Alumni Membership. This gives you access to the physical library buildings and ability to borrow up to 4 books or resources at a time.  

Please note: due to license restrictions, alumni membership does not allow access to online resources or campus PCs.
