Library services for visitors and alumni



Library access and visitor cards

Visitors are welcome between 08:00-21:00 - see the full opening hours. Please ask staff at the Welcome Desk (near the Main Entrance) to let you through the gate.

Visitor card

If you are a regular visitor to the Templeman Library but you don't want borrower membership, we recommend you apply for a visitor card.

It's valid for one year and you can renew it.

With a visitor card you can:

  • easily swipe in and out at all library entrances
  • print from the visitor PC and photocopy for a small charge you need to buy credits from Welcome Desk
  • scan - it's free

To get your card

Visit the Welcome Desk near the Templeman Library Main Entrance and ask for a visitor card. We will create a card for you and give you the username and password you need for printing.

You need to bring photo ID with you (which all visitors need to carry when in the library).
