Library Membership

Current staff and students of Queen's University are automatically members of the Library. Please bring your staff or student card with you if you wish to access any of the Queen's Library sites.

Membership of the Library is also possible under the following arrangements:


Honorary membership is available to members of QUB staff who are over 55 years of age and have retired from Queen's University Belfast after at least 10 years continuous service. Honorary membership must be applied for within 2 years of retirement and will be given for 5 years in the first instance. Application for renewal can be made at the end of that time. Honorary membership is also available to honorary graduates and current members of Senate. Please contact the Associate Membership Service - fbs@qub.ac.uk for the relevant application form.

Recognised Teachers (recognised by the Collaborative Provision Group) and Honorary Titles or Visiting Research Titles (approved by the Honorary Titles Group) will be issued a card by Academic Affairs on appointment.

Teaching Assistants should contact their Faculty Administrator.

Please note that non-members need to apply in advance if they wish to use the McClay Library at Queen's. Further information can be found on the Admission to The McClay Library webpage.
