Please note that due to pressure on study space during our 24-hour opening and exam periods, access to The Sheppard-Worlock Library will be restricted to Visitors with borrowing rights only (your card will contain a barcode) between:

Monday 9th April - Friday 1st June inclusive

Visitors with a Reference only card (no barcode) will not be permitted access during this period. 
We appreciate your co-operation.

If you are interested in joining The Sheppard-Worlock Library as a visitor, then check your eligibility in the Access Information for External users section

If you are eligible for membership please complete a Library Visitor Application Form and submit this to Library Help Point or by post to :

You will need to provide photographic proof of identification e.g. driving licence or passport, and proof of your address e.g. header of a recent utility bill.

The Director of Library and Learning Spaces will make a decision based on the information provided on the form and you will be contacted with further instructions. (In some cases the Director may authorise a reference card which will allow access to the building and print resources without borrowing rights)

You will need to supply an electronic passport sized photograph that can be added to your ID card.


Although external users are welcome the library’s main focus is to support the students and staff of Liverpool Hope University and so not all facilities are available to externals.  For example, access to computers, online resources, printing and photocopying or use of group study spaces and study carrels is reserved for Liverpool Hope users.

If you are from a Higher Education institution which is part of the Eduroam scheme you will be able to access the internet from your devices. However you must have set up Eduroam on your device at your home institution before you visit Liverpool Hope.  

If you require any further information or advice please contact:
