Convocation’s subscribing members have, for many years, had access to the benefit of discounted Library Membership. Access to the Library print collections and online resources was a valuable benefit to Convocation’s members who supported Convocation through the subscription.
The money raised by subscriptions help fund faculty prizes, postgraduate research travel awards, cultural and sporting awards, and maintains Convocation’s activities on campus. Your subscription also supports the development of services for graduates.
