Library Guides



Most academic libraries will allow you to use their resources in the library as reference items but members of the SCONUL Access scheme allow limited borrowing rights to members of other participating libraries. Most libraries cannot allow access to their electronic resources due to licensing restrictions, however some are able to offer a "walk in" service where a limited range of electronic resources are available to the general public.

You can find out on the SCONUL access website which libraries you would be eligible to use. PLEASE NOTE that you cannot just turn up and expect to borrow from these libraries. SCONUL Access cards must be collected from Reception on Level 1 of the Library.
