Services for the public

Less than 500 words

Through our partnership with Worcester County Council, the University of Worcester makes a number of its resources available to the public in The Hive.  University of Worcester Library Services regulations will apply when University library items are borrowed.

  • Members of the public can borrow twelve three-week loan items and one University High Demand two-week loan item. 
  • Public library members have access to over 45,000 academic journals through the Research Databases portal.  Please note these databases are only accessible from within the building, however they can be printed or saved for use outside of The Hive – for non-commercial purposes only.
  • Private researchers can get assistance from our team of Academic Librarians on the Level 3 askalibrarian desk.
