Support for Students in Partner Institutions: Information for Distance Learners

Distance Learners

Distance learners

As a distance learner student you have access to the library's resources and services. This includes online access to library resources as well as being able to visit any of the three campus libraries in person. Online access to library resources is via the Library and Computing tab on the student portal. To access the portal select the Student Portal link from the My Greenwich drop down menu on the University home page.

If you live close enough to visit our libraries you will need to bring your Greenwich Gateway card to gain entry to the libraries, as well as your university username and password if you want to use the computer labs in the libraries. You are entitled to borrow up to 16 items. (If you have not received your Greenwich Gateway card please contact the Student Helpline including your name and 9 digit University of Greenwich student number in the email).

However, to give distance learners access to the library’s print resources we also offer you postal loan and photocopy services. You can use these to be sent books, or photocopies of book chapters or print journal articles, in stock in the library. The book request form can be found at http://www.gre.ac.uk/it-and-library/forms/postal-loan-form.  If you have any queries, please email ils-collab@gre.ac.uk

If you require an item which is not in stock in our library we may be able to obtain this for you through the Document Supply service.

As well as our services outlined above you also have access to other university libraries through the nationwide library access scheme SCONUL Access. Registering with this scheme allows you to borrow a limited number of books from libraries in the scheme, which may be closer to where you live or work, or simply use them as a place to study. You apply online via the SCONUL Access web site.
