Bangor University Library operates an open door policy and welcomes members of public to use the library during regular opening times (9am – 9pm Monday to Friday and 12pm – 5pm at weekends).

Should members of the public wish to borrow from our collections, they can do this free of charge by joining through the Linc-y-Gogledd scheme.

Graduates of Bangor University can request library access by emailing the Alumni Office.

If you are a registered student or member of staff at another participating University, including the Open University, you may also join through the Sconul Access scheme.

Nurses, midwives and radiographers employed by the NHS in North Wales can also apply for membership by producing a pay slip or contract to confirm their employment at a Customer Service Desk.

Anyone not included in the above categories can join as an external borrower upon payment of a security deposit and annual subscription. Contact the Customer Services Manager for further details.

All of the External Borrower categories above are entitled to borrow up to 6 items for 2 weeks and can make use of our self-service photocopying facilities.  Access to our computers and most electronic resources however, is restricted.

External Borrowers are also entitled to access some of our Electronic Resources through our Walk-in Access service, although certain restrictions do apply.  Please click here for further information about Walk-in Access.
