Joining and using the library

Your Library Account

Your library account comprises a library card to borrow items from the libraries at Canterbury (Augustine House), Broadstairs and Salomons and a log-in to access LibrarySearch. To activate your library account, please complete the Staff library account request form. Smartcard holders will have library functionality added to their smartcard. If you do not have a smartcard a separate card will be created for you. We will notify you by e-mail when your accounts have been created.

Staff based at Medway can take their University ID to the Drill Hall Library and a separate account will be created so that you can borrow from there (up to 24 items). If you are not based at the Medway campus you may be able to borrow books through the Invicta borrowing sheme.

For details on loan allowances, renewing books and other useful information please see using the library.

Using your staff Smartcard as your library card

Existing Library account holders can apply to use their staff Smartcard as their library card. Please email your staff ID number to library.systems@canterbury.ac.uk. You will be notified by e-mail when your library account has been updated. Once this functionality has been added to your Smartcard, your staff Library card becomes redundant and should be destroyed to avoid confusion.
