Visitors and membership


Visitors and members of the public are welcome to use the University Library in Catalyst on the Ormskirk Campus for research and study. During Catalyst helpdesk opening hours, visitors can access the study facilities and browse our print collections. You can search Discover More to see what we have in our collection or just ask us and we will be happy to help you find the items you need. 

Outside of Catalyst helpdesk opening hours access is for current staff and students only.

Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times unless visiting as part of an organised school visit, event or open day. More information about events and activities for schools and colleges can be found on the student recruitment pages.

Electronic resources


Library membership for Edge Hill staff and student is automatic. We have a number of membership options available to other types of users. A membership allows you to borrow up to 5 items from our 2 week loan collection and in certain cases access to a limited number of electronic resources remotely.
