Using the Library

Alumni Library membership

Please note that the University campus and the Library is currently closed until further notice. 

Membership is open to former students who live in the local area and are not currently studying at another University. There is no charge for this. Contact for a membership form. Please note we cannot provide membership forms in the Library at the moment. All enquiry services are currently online. 

You will be asked to complete a membership form and provide the following: 

  • Proof of connection to Arts University Bournemouth (formerly BPCAD, AIB and AUCB) e.g. certificate, written confirmation from tutor or equivalent. 
  • Proof of address
  • Photo ID

Membership is reviewed annually on the anniversary of joining. 

Borrowing entitlement: 3 standard loan books for 3 weeks with 1 renewal. Licensing restrictions mean that we cannot provide access to online subscription content for alumni.
