Using other libraries - SCONUL Access

A number of UK and Ireland higher education libraries participate in a reciprocal access scheme called SCONUL Access.

The SCONUL Access scheme allows staff, research students, full time postgraduates and part time, distance learning and placement students to borrow material held in other higher education libraries. 

Full-time undergraduate students can access material on a reference only basis.

The SCONUL Access website will give you more information on the options available to undergraduate and postgraduate students. You can also check which libraries participate in the scheme.

This may be particularly useful if you are travelling home for the Easter vacation.  

To join the scheme you will need to apply for a SCONUL Access card from your home library - The University of Sheffield Library. Take a look at the Library web pages to find out more.
