This scheme is an initiative by the Bolton Libraries Access Group (BLAG) to provide access to the University of Bolton Library. The scheme enables all students studying on Access courses at Bolton College to use some of the facilities available in the University Library.
The Library will provide:
- Access to all printed materials for reference
- Borrowing of up to 5 standard loan items
- Photocopying facilities
- Study space
Access to computing software, electronic resources and group study rooms is not available. Bolton College members who wish to use the Library during staffed hours on Saturdays should contact the Library Desk on 01204 903094 to arrange access to the building. Access to services outside of staffed hours is not available.
Users should fill in an application form and take it to their home library for endorsement. As the home library is ultimately responsible for any losses caused by their users, only users who are registered and in good standing with their home library will have their applications approved.
Endorsed forms can be exchanged for a membership card at the Help Desk in the University Library but your application cannot be processed during busy periods such as lunch hours and the start of the academic year. Membership is granted for the duration of the academic year but if you still meet the criteria for membership on expiry of your card it can be extended upon proof of entitlement and current address.
Members are subject to the Library rules and regulations, and are responsible for any fines or replacement costs incurred. Your card can be withdrawn if you infringe these rules.
