Like most other organisations, we use forms to get things done. On this page you will find a list showing most of the forms and other documents that you may need to use, along with a short description of what it is used for.
If you click on the name of any of the forms, then it will appear on your screen as a “PDF” file (or, very occasionally, a “DOC” file). You then have the option to print it, or simply to read it on the screen. Some of the forms may allow you to fill them in on the screen and send them back to LCCU.
For loans and membership, there are also “online” forms that you can use. These get faster action.
Of course, if you want us to send you a copy of a form or brochure in the post, please telephone us or write to us and we will get it right out to you.
We are constantly updating these forms, but you can still use the older forms.
