Information for students and staff from City College and Easton & Otley College Information for students and staff from City College and Easton & Otley College

All eligible students and staff at City College Norwich and Easton College are entitled to Library membership and access to UEA subscribed electronic resources in support of their studies where licences permit and it is technically possible.

Who is eligible to use UEA Information Services?

If you are a student or member of staff teaching or studying on a UEA award-bearing course, you will be able to use the services and facilities offered by UEA Information Services to support your work or studies.  You will need a UEA campus card in order to access UEA Library and to make use of the self-service facilities in the Library.

How can I join the Library?

You will need to obtain and complete V3 Application Form from your home institution library. Please return the form, together with a passport-sized photograph to your college library who will validate the form and send it to UEA Library. A campus card will be produced for you and sent to your home institution library where it should be available for you to collect within 10 working days. Alternatively, you can bring the authorised form to the UEA Library. Please note that at busy times of year we may not be able to process your application immediately.

I had a UEA campus card last year, do I need to renew it or apply for a new one?

You do not need to re-apply or to renew your campus card. Your existing campus card is valid until the end of your course and so you can continue to use it to access the facilities in UEA Library or to borrow items, until the expiry date printed on the front of the card.

How many items can I borrow?

Students may borrow up to 10 items at a time, normally for 2 weeks at a time.  Staff may borrow up to 20 items at a time. All items borrowed must be returned to UEA Library.  Fines will be charged for late returns. All Library users are expected to abide by the Library Rules

What e-resources are available?

Information about the electronic resources available to you can be found on our EZ Proxy pages or from your home institution library.

How can I access the  electronic resources?

You will be issued with a UEA username and password by the Library at your college, which you will need to use to access the electronic resources. You will need to read and agree to the UEA IT Conditions of Use before your password is issued to you.  More information is available from your home institution library and via our EZ Proxy pages.

Important information for staff about e-resource access

Remote access to UEA resources for academic staff from CCN and Easton is limited owing to licence restrictions. We will provide access to resources as and when agreement is reached with the suppliers. For e-resources that are already available to academic staff, use the 'Teachers of Authorised Users' link from the EZ Proxy web pages.

Academic staff from CCN and Easton are also able to access our e-resources using our 'Visitor access service' available on our designated open-access PCs on Floor 0 of UEA Library.

Your home institution library should be able to provide help.  Further help is available on this website and you can also contact the Library Helpdesk for advice
