Graduation. CCCU Alumni

Congratulations to all the students who are graduating this week. It’s a great feeling knowing all the hard work has paid off. Whatever your plans are going forward, we are still here to support you in any further learning you might want to undertake after graduation.

All alumni can join the Library for FREE for their first year. If you’re already an alumni member, we’re currently waiving our £20 renewal fee whilst we prepare to update our alumni offer this summer.

What is available for alumni members of the library?

Wondering if joining is right for you? Let’s look at what we have to offer:

  • Access to the library and its print collections (please see our Opening Hours page for more details on when public members can use the library).
  • A borrowing allowance of:
    • eight items from the 4-week loan collection,
    • two items from the 7-day loan collection,
    • eight items from the curriculum resources collection.
  • The ability to request items from another Christ Church University Library
  • Support on the use of the library, including finding books and using our library catalogue (LibrarySearch).
  • Wi-Fi.
  • Use of the visitor PC with limited access to electronic resources.
  • Printing, photocopying and scanning facilities.
  • The Learning Skills Hub is open access, so you can continue to use it for your academic, personal and professional development. Take a look at our life after university modules.
  • A RefWorks alumni account. You can continue to access your RefWorks account after you graduate even if you don’t join the library as an alumnus. But you’ll need to update your account before you leave the University. Instructions are available on the RefWorks webpages.

What’s not included?

We do not offer a computing or email account. Guest Wi-Fi is available to use within the building or you can use the visitor PC.

Due to licensing restrictions, we cannot offer access to most online resources. A limited number of online resources are available through the visitor PC.

That sounds great… How do I join?

Go and visit our website and complete the membership form. Once we have received your application, we will set up your account within five working days. We will contact you when your new library card is ready to collect. You will need to bring proof of identity and proof of address when you come to collect your card.

That’s all there is to it.

Your relationship with the Library doesn’t have to stop at Graduation. We look forward to supporting your ongoing journey, wherever it takes you.
