In addition, items from the Albert Sloman Library may be requested via the daily van service. If a student identifies a book in the ASL library catalogue that they would like to borrow, they should fill in a request form at the South Essex College library (Request for Albert Sloman Library Loans) for the book and attach a printout of the relevant catalogue record. Alternatively, students can email ASLrequest@southend.ac.uk, with their name, South Essex College ID number, course and the title details of the book. It will then be sent to the South Essex College library on the van for the student to collect. Short loan and three day loan books are excluded from this service. The van service runs every day from Monday to Friday.

Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust

Students who are studying University validated courses and are registered as University of Essex students at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust may borrow books from the Albert Sloman Library. The Library has a variety of loan periods in order to meet the needs of all members of the University. Students based at the Trust may find that material which can be borrowed on standard loan (until the end of the University term for postgraduate students) is the most useful. Books may be renewed online or by telephone. All borrowing from the Albert Sloman Library by Trust students takes place directly from the Library itself; there is no postal loans service.

Online resources for registered University of Essex students can be accessed through the Library website. Access to resources is controlled by University username and password rather than by ATHENS.

Staff of the Trust may register for reference facilities at the Albert Sloman Library, and may apply for borrowing rights at the discretion of the Librarian. Other students of the Trust are also eligible to receive reference facilities. Please contact the Librarian in order to arrange access.
