Physical resources (eg books, DVDs etc):

You are entitled to the full staff allowance for borrowing physical resources. This is detailed on the Borrowing entitlements page.

You are eligible to apply for inter-library loans.

You are also entitled to reference access to any further physical resources (i.e. resources can be used within the library but not borrowed or taken elsewhere).

Electronic resources:

You are entitled to partial access to electronic resources.

Due to licensing restrictions, we regret to say we are not able to make all of our subscribed electronic resources available to you. If you are denied access to material online, it is probably hosted by an electronic resource you are not entitled to.

If you experience any trouble accessing electronic resources or have any questions, get in touch using the Contact us section on this page. A current list of the electronic resources available to you can be provided on request.

Alternatively, you may find you can access more electronic resources via walk in access as defined in the walk in access guide.

For help getting started with e-resources, see our video introduction to Library Search, which is our first port of call for finding electronic resources, and our general guide to using our online services.


To access Library resources, you must first be registered on the university's systems as a student teacher mentor. Registration can be requested via the relevant Dean/Head of Department and a university ID card generated.

Once you are registered with Manchester Metropolitan University, your access to electronic resources is granted automatically but you will need to fill in a borrower registration form when you first visit a site Library in order to access the Library and borrow physical items.
