SCONUL Access Scheme

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

You can find out on the SCONUL 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 issued by Plymouth University library.

Welcome to the library guide for postgraduate and post-registration students

If you are new to the university you will need to work through the information on this page.  There is also a wealth of information on finding and using the library's resources for health studies & evidence based practice in the guide for Health and Social Work students on Distance and Blended Learning courses here

Keys for Success

  • Upload a photo via the card office website

  • Got your card?  You are now automatically a member of the library.

You will automatically get a student email account. If you would prefer to use your own email account, you need to set up emails to be re-directed. Information on how to do this is here.

When you are working away from the university campus, you need to be aware of how to access electronic library resources. 

The Other Support tab shows you details of the extra library support for part-time and distance students.
