Library charges

Anybody can join the library and most services are free. It doesn't cost anything to borrow books or use the computers.

Non-members are very welcome to use any of our reference facilities for free, but you need to be a member to access them online.

Common library charges are listed below. A document listing every service and charge is available from the Documents section on this page.​​​​
