Library Services for University Alumni

The services and resources offered by the University of Bath Library to support Alumni and your lifelong learning.

Access to online information resources

  • After graduating from the University, you will find that you lose access to the online resources provided by the Library.  This includes the databases, electronic journals and ebook titles you used while studying. However, with the growth of the open access movement, a large volume of research is available for free online.  Often Creative Commons licences provide possibilities for reusing this information.

  • The Library has compiled a guide to recommended resources on the internet, many of these are free to use.

Further services for Alumni

Joining the Library as an Alumni member

As we cautiously reopen for returning staff and students for this academic year, it is with regret and by necessity that access to the Library will be restricted to current members of the University only, because of Covid-19/social distancing arrangements.

We will reinstate memberships as soon as we are able and when we do all memberships will be re-set for a year. For those who have paid for their membership and would prefer a refund, pro-rated to the point at which we closed in March, we are happy to do this.

Online Access to resources

We have gathered up a list of free resources you might find useful.

Unfortunately, the Library is unable to allow access to all our online resources we have because of the terms of the licence agreements of some publishers. Online resources are not available off-campus.
