Student library membership

How the library supports students on our academic long courses

Students on our academic long courses have library membership included as part of their course fees. This allows access to online services, such as databases, ebooks, journals and Box of Broadcasts, as well as the option to borrow printed books and audio-visual material.

When you’re fully enrolled on a course that includes library membership, you’ll be emailed Shibboleth login details to allow you to access our online services. Your Tavistock and Portman student ID card will act as your library borrowing card.

If you experience any problems with your membership, please contact the library and we’ll always be happy to help.

CPD students sometimes have different types of library access options – see our webpage about library services for CPD courses.

University of Essex services

Students on long courses validated by the University of Essex can also get access to the university’s library and other digital services, such as software and online training.
