Open University students, like students at many other UK universities, may use ARU Library if they have a valid SCONUL Access email.

For information on obtaining a SCONUL Access email, please see the links below.

Please visit our Library Reception during staffed hours and present your SCONUL Access email together with your OU library card and provide a digital photograph to obtain a Library membership card. Library cards can only be produced Mon-Fri and take at least 2 days. You will not have access to the library until your card is produced. Staffed hours for all three sites are detailed on the library website under "Opening Hours".

Your membership will be set to expire at the end of our academic year or when your OU membership expires, whichever is earlier.

Please note: SCONUL members may borrow 5 items. You will not have access to University Library PCs but are able to connect to the Internet via your own laptop using Eduroam. You will not be entitled to interlibrary loans.
