Using Other Libraries

The library belongs to a co-operative scheme which allows Middlesex University students physical access to other academic libraries. This is:

  • SCONUL ACCESS This scheme is a national co-operative venture between higher education libraries which allows borrowing facilities to libraries for part-time, distance, and placement students on undergraduate, postgraduate and research programmes A list of member libraries, their library catalogues and visiting procedures are available from the website.
  • SCONUL Access is now only open to students studying at Middlesex University and not at partner institutions, unless the partner is one a publicly funded Further Education College.
  • To apply, go to the SCONUL Access web site and complete the online form.  You will then receive an email confirming your membership.  You take this with your Middlesex University ID card to the libraries you wish to use.

In addition students may use:

  • British Library The British Library is one of the world greatest collections of books and journals and if you have been unable to find the material you require elsewhere, you can apply for a visitor's pass. Please read the instructions in advance of visiting the library.

If there are other libraries which you would like to visit which fall outside these arrangements, please contact the Web Helpdesk , stating that you are a distance learner
