If you are at home and cannot get into the university libraries you can use the SCONUL Access scheme which will allow you to use libraries nearer to you at institutions which are part of the scheme. 

SCONUL access is free to join. it allows staff and post-graduate students to borrow items, although full-time undergraduates can use the libraries for reference purposes only.

SCONUL Access covers most of the college and university libraries in the UK and Ireland.  It does not extend to overseas libraries.
