Library membership

Alumni have the opportunity to take up a discounted associate library membership.

Paid Associate Members of the library can borrow up to six items for a period of six weeks. Paid Associate membership normally involves a fee of £60.00 per annum but as a graduate of University of Plymouth you are entitled to a 50 per cent discount on annual membership.

At University of Plymouth we recognise that the library is a valuable tool to help progress your personal development, and research after you graduate, in the words of one Plymouth Alumnus Mr Han Ozturk

“I have had an opportunity to access the library resources at Plymouth after many years, as I was seeking specific information in the area of maritime logistics and terminals in the course of my business and further research I am currently undertaking. I found the opportunity invaluable as it is difficult to come across such literature elsewhere.”
