Getting Started in the Library

An introduction to Library Services for new users


Welcome to Library Services at the University of Birmingham


This guide brings together key information to help you as a new member of the University make the most of all the wonderful things LIbrary Services has to offer. 

You can find more information on the Library Services intranet pages.

On registering, you will be given a library card which you will need to have with you whenever you visit the Library. A card-operated access control system is in operation in the Main Library and most of the other sites and resource centres.
