If your research is very specialised you may wish to use additional libraries. On this page you will find details of how to do this and some of the resources available through other libraries.
In line with Government guidelines, and following the closure of library buildings, the SCONUL Access scheme will be suspended until further notice.
We will be disabling the SCONUL Access form on the website to prevent new applications being made during this period.
You may need to use other libraries if your research is very specialised. Academic staff and all students except full time undergraduates can have borrowing rights at virtually every other academic library in the UK through SCONUL Access.
Middlesex University is a member of the SCONUL Access scheme.
You can request access to other university libraries free of charge online at the link below.
Search 25 allows you to search all HE libraries within and around the M25 so is very useful for students in Hendon trying to locate books elsewhere, or find study space nearer to home.
If you wish to visit one of these libraries you will then need to check their library catalogue for details of whether the item you are looking for is available, and where and when.
You will also need a SCONUL card. The SCONUL Access scheme provides access to a number of Higher Education Institution Libraries in the UK. Information on the scheme is available at http://www.sconul.ac.uk/sconul-access
Sconul Access is a FREE scheme where you can use other university libraries in London to study and (depending on your level of study) borrow books. You can also use Eduroam to use their wifi to access our e-resources.
See the list on this page for examples of libraries you can use in London
You may apply for a reading pass to access the reading rooms at the British Library at St Pancras. Prior to your visit you must conduct a literature search and have investigated other methods of accessing items.
Application forms are available from The British Library website.
The British Library Public Catalogue is at http://catalogue.bl.uk/
PLEASE BE AWARE much of the British Library material is not held at the main British Library but at warehouses off site so make sure you search the website before visiting!
For most students this is reference and study access, but you may also be able to borrow books. Please follow the instructions in the other box to check your membership entitlements.
