Birmingham Metropolitan College: Podiatry course

Podiatry students 

As part of a local arrangement with Birmingham Metropolitan College, students studying on the Podiatry course may register for Library membership.

How do I join the library?

Library staff will check that your name appears on the list of students currently enrolled on the Podiatry course.

You will need to complete a registration form.  Once we have checked your details, your visitor card will be ready within one week and you will be notified when you can collect it from the Library Help desk.  (Please check the Help desk opening hours.)  You will need to bring proof of your current home address and your college ID card when you collect your card.

You will need to bring your visitor card each time you come to the Library to gain access to the building. Your visitor card can also be used to borrow books. 

Is there a charge?

No, membership of the Library forms part of the agreement between Aston University and Birmingham Metropolitan College.

Can I borrow books?

Yes, you may borrow a total of 6 books at any one time. (You will not be able to borrow short loan books or journals.) Fines will be charged on overdue books.
When can I use the Library? Providing you have your visitor card on you, you can use the Library from 09:00 - 21:00 Monday to Friday, up until 18:00 on Saturdays and up until 17:00 on Sundays. This is the case even when the Library is open to Aston University staff and students for extended opening hours.

Can I access electronic resources?

A limited selection can be accessed from a Library loanable laptop. 

How long does my membership last?

Until 31 July (end of the current academic year). This is renewable annually but you will need to complete a new registration form each time you wish to renew, or if your card is lost.
