When you register on any Continuing Education course you will be entitled to use the University Library's facilities.
How to set up your library access
In order to use the library facilities you will need a University Card (known as your UniCard).
About the library
The Library website lists an excellent selection of electronic resources including an online search facility, with options to search the library catalogue, journal articles, or archive collections. You will also be able to access your personal library record where you will find listed any items you have borrowed, and when they are due back. If an item has not been recalled for use by someone else, it can be renewed online.
The electronic library
The University subscribes to a wide range of online resources, including:
- archival collections
- audio visual resources
- law reports
- census data
- electronic journals
- electronic books
...and much more. You will be able to search by subject area and resource type. The Electronic Library is held behind a secure login and only available to registered students.
All distance learning students can make use of the library's postal loans service - but there are two things to note:
- all students: the library had a 'digital first' policy, and obtains electronic content wherever possible - they will only supply postal loans if the item is not available in an electronic format
- students overseas: the library does not usually post books outside of the UK, unless the item is essential to your research or study (if this is the case, please make this clear in your request).
See the Postal Loans Service pages of the Library website for further details.
Students in Cornwall
students in or with easy access to Cornwall can benefit from a modern, well equipped library located at the University's Penryn Campus, near Falmouth. In addition to the usual stocks of books, maps, electronic resources, and journals, the library is well linked to the University of Exeter’s Library-by-van service, and provides 24 hour access to computing facilities.
For more information, please visit the Tremough Campus Library Website.
Additional information for students on credit-bearing programmes
The University of Exeter is part of the Sconul Access scheme, which allows students studying a credit-bearing course of at least one year to register with other university libraries that are members of the scheme. Please note that students studying non credit-bearing courses do not qualify for Sconul Access membership.
If you are studying a credit-bearing programme via distance learning, you can apply online via the Sconul Access website.
