SCONUL Access is a reciprocal scheme which allows many university library users to borrow or use books and journals at other libraries which belong to the scheme. The scheme covers most of the university libraries in the UK and Ireland.
Sconul Access has now reopened following its shutdown during the height of the Covid pandemic. Please see link below for applying for Sconul Access
The following major library catalogues are available freely online and may well aid your research.

It is possible to visit the British Library for research purposes. Full details about using the British Library Reading Rooms at St Pancras, including registering for a reader's pass, are available online. Students will be expected to have first explored the British Library Catalogue to identify the resources they need to consult. Most items held by the British Library are not out on the open shelves and must be requested for delivery, with a wait of around an hour, so a visit needs to be planned carefully.
