The University has a code of conduct which applies equally to External Customers as it does to its own students and staff
Learning Resources has its own Code of Conduct and all External Customers are expected to be familiar with it and abide by it. Sanctions are at the bottom of this page.
By registering as an external customer of the University of Bedfordshire's Learning Resources you may have walk-in access to a limited range of digital resources. This is available on Campus only. If you use Walk In access privileges you are agreeing to comply with the conditions set out below. If you have any further questions about copyright or the license conditions in place for specific digital resources, please consult a member of Learning Resources staff.
All of the University's digital resources are protected by copyright law. You are responsible for complying with any restrictions on the available digitial resources that you access.
Please check this list for the digital materials that are available for Walk In access.
You agree to:
Guidelines and policies are in place to help library users, but it does not confer any rights, since admission to libraries is always at the discretion of the University of Bedfordshire. Library users who abuse their membership privileges could lose all access to the scheme and SCONUL Access members would also be subject to sanctions in their home institution.
Please contact your chosen Campus in advance of your visit to check the availability of the service and to ensure that we have the resources you require.
Please note that access to the service may be restricted at busy times and is provided on a strict 'first come first served' basis during staffed hours.
Fines will be applied to the late return of any loan time
If you are in breech of the Code of Conduct the 3 strikes sanction process is:
Depending on the breech 1st, 2nd or 3rd strike may be applied depending on the severity of the offense. Where applicable your home institution may be notified and in the case of Sconul Access we will notify the scheme.
