How to join the library

Joining the library is easy - download and complete our library registration form and we will send you a library card and welcome pack.

To be eligible to join the library you must be a member of the College.

Benefits of joining the library

As a library member you have access to your own online library account through which you can:

  • Order journal articles
  • Request books
  • Renew loans
  • Place hold requests

Library membership also gives you access to the book and journal holdings of all other Shelcat partner libraries. We can also request books and articles from the British library, NHS Scotland libraries and University libraries on your behalf.

Fellows and members can also apply for an Athens account which will give you access to online resources and full text articles via the Knowledge Network.

International members

International members are also welcome to join our library. With your library membership you can use your online library account to order any journal articles that you cannot source via the Knowledge Network.

Log in using your username or email address. You can also use your College Personal ID (PID) if you have one.
