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.
