Yes! You will need to apply online for SCONUL Access membership.

SCONUL Access is a scheme which allows our students and staff to borrow or use books and journals at participating libraries. Most of the university libraries in the UK and Ireland belong to the scheme. 

To check your eligibility, borrowing entitlements, and for more information see the SCONUL website.

Complete the form to check that the university library that you wish to use is a member of SCONUL. After applying and receiving an approval email, you should check the website of the library that you wish to visit as you may also need to apply for membership of that library.

Some libraries will restrict access at busy times of year so always check their website before visiting.

IT facilities and access to electronic journals and databases are not included in the scheme and the availability of some collections may be restricted at the discretion of the participating library.
