Bolton Sixth Form Access Scheme is an initiative by the Bolton Libraries Access Group (BLAG) to provide library access to the University of Bolton. The scheme enables all academic staff and students studying at AS/A2/AVCE or equivalent level in the following schools/colleges in Bolton:

to use the facilities available in the Library at the University of Bolton.

The Library will provide:

  • Access to all printed materials for reference
  • Borrowing of up to 3 standard loan items  
  • Photocopying Facilities
  • Study Space

Access to computing software, electronic resources and group study rooms is not available. Sixth Form members who experience difficulty accessing the Library during staffed hours on Saturdays should contact the Library Desk on 01204 903094 to arrange access to the building.

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 Library Desk 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 Your card can be withdrawn if you infringe these rules.

Please note that the Library does contain material which is unsuitable for children therefore applicants who are under the age of 18 must have their applications countersigned by a parent or guardian.
