Join our library
Current BCU students, staff and researchers
Current students and members of BCU staff have automatic access to the library, with your university ID card also acting as your library card.
The 10-digit number above the barcode on your card is your library number, which you will need to access some services. You'll also need your library PIN number which is mailed to your university email account when you enrol. If you did not receive the email with your PIN, please contact us for assistance.
University members can borrow up to twenty items at a time. Loan periods vary depending on the individual item borrowed but will be clearly visible on the item itself. Fines apply for items returned after their due date. To keep track of when you need to return your items you can view your loans via the 'My Account' menu at the top of this website.
External library membership
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are not accepting any registrations or visits from non-BCU students or staff. We will update this page when the policy changes. This includes all categories of membership.
Accessing the library online:
You can access our online resources and catalogue at any time by logging in with your University ID and password via the menu at the top of this page. To help you get acquainted with our online resources please view the guide pages below.
