After you graduate ...   

If you are a life member you can still use the Union Library!  8 books for 2 weeks during term time or 10 during vacations - exactly the same as when you were a student.  Just make sure you tell the Library your new (i.e. non-university) email address.

If you are staying in Oxford you may wish to get a Bodleian Reader's Card.  It is free of charge and can be obtained from the Bodleian Library.  You can use it for your Union Library borrowing.  And of course it entitles you to go into the Bodleian and Radcliffe Science Libraries.

Love the Union Library?   

Say an end of term "thank you"

... with a £5 donation to our book repair fund.  Help us to keep the books in good condition for people to use.  We are always delighted to welcome gifts in cash or online (ring 01865-246782 for more about online payments). 

You can be sure that anything you give will be put to the best possible use.
