Ask a DBS Librarian


Membership

Once you register as a DBS student, you are automatically a member of the Library. Your DBS student card entitles you to access the Library and to borrow Library materials. Academic staff members must contact the Library to be registered, after which they will be issued with a Library staff card which entitles them to access the Library and to borrow materials.
