Associate library membership

If you are not a registered member of the university, and are over 18, you may be able to take out associate library membership:


Borrowing Associate membership

  • Borrowing Associate membership normally involves a fee of £60.00 per annum (including VAT) and is granted to those with a specific identifiable need to use our facilities which could not be met by the public library services (e.g. in support of professional development; personal research activity)
  • Graduates of Plymouth University automatically become part of the alumni community and are entitled to 50% discount on annual membership.
  • Borrowing Associate Members may borrow up to 6 items for a period of 6 weeks. If another user requests an item out on loan, an email will be sent requesting the return of the item within 7 days.
