The Library

Partner students

If you are studying on a University of Salford programme, based at one of our partner colleges or a partner institution, you are welcome to use our libraries.

There are different types of partner college and partner institution programmes (generally known as collaborative provision). Your College or Institution Tutor can tell you which type you are studying and this will affect the range of information resources and services that you are able to use. The information should also be available in your Student Handbook. If you are still unsure please email Richard Clemens or Chris Knighting.

You can be registered for a library/computing account as an Associate Member. This provides restricted access to our IT and library services, including an email account, access to the virtual learning environment and reference access to the library.

Students for whom the University receives funding directly

If you are studying on a programme for which the University of Salford is funded directly, you can access all of our library information resources and services.

Students for whom the partner institution receives funding

Our licenses restrict the access we can provide to ICT and electronic resources. However visiting students can make use of the following services:

  • Reference access to a wide range of books, journals and magazines
  • Library card with the entitlement to borrow up to four items
  • Areas to read and study
  • Support from staffed Enquiry Desks in each library
  • Access to some electronic resources (ask at an Enquiry Desk)
  • Card operated photocopying facilities

Where the partner institution has purchased further services from the University of Salford, these too are available.
