Internal users (academic staff, students, postgraduate collaborators, postgraduate researchers, PhD Students) as well as the administrative staff of the HOU, automatically become members of the library.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students must show their academic I.D. card in order to use the library and its services.
The library issues a membership card to external users who use its premises. In order to obtain a library card one must fill in an application form and hand in a photocopy of their I.D. card and a passport size photograph. The membership card is valid for 2 years and it’s required for external users to enter the library and use its services. Non students who wish to use the services of the library via distance, have to send a copy of their I.D. card (by fax or e-mail) and fill in a Borrowing Request Form which is available by clicking on Borrowing Printed Books.
