Q. How do I join SCONUL?
If you are at home and cannot get into the university libraries (for example distance learners or during the summer vaction) you can use the SCONUL Access scheme which will allow you to use libraries nearer to you at institutions which are also part of the scheme.
SCONUL access is free to join. It allows staff and postgraduate 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 however extend to overseas libraries.
