Want to use another library?

8 January 2013

If you are:

  • an academic on an open or fixed term contract
  • a postgraduate research student registered for a PhD, MPhil or similar qualification
  • a part-time, distance learning and placement student
  • or a full-time postgraduate

you may be able to borrow from other college or university libraries.

To register with the SCONUL scheme, you need to apply on the SCONUL website:

  • Go to
  • Select ‘Sconul Access’ (on right hand side)
  • Select user type and home institution.
  • Select institution that you wish to use
    • Application form does not always appear on IE8, however if you click on the institution on the Map function the link to the form works there (or try Firefox)

Once your application has been approved you will receive an email that you need to print off and take to the institution you wish to join.

If you wish to join multiple libraries, they need to apply to each one individually.
