Q. What access do I have as SU staff?
Due to COVID-19 safety mitigations we are only able to loan physical books to current students or staff of the University of Essex. Please keep an eye on our Covid-19 updates page for news relating to our services. We are unable to set up new membership accounts at this time.
As a member of staff at the Students' Union, you can sign up for a library account which will allow you to borrow 5 physical books from the main collection at the Colchester campus library.
To sign up for an account, please fill in the form below and return it to the Helpdesk along with 2 pieces of ID
- One photo ID
- One proof of address
We will also need an email or letter from the SU HR to confirm that you are a current member of staff.
Library staff will make you a library card which will allow you to borrow books using the self-issue machines.
Please note, this membership does not give remote access to our online resources. Please see our FAQ on Walk in access if you would like to use e-resources while visiting the library building
