Are you interested in using other university libraries?

If you are an academic member of staff, postgraduate student or part-time undergraduate student at SMU and would like to be able to borrow material from other UK university libraries, then the SCONUL Access scheme is for you!

SCONUL Access is a reciprocal access scheme, granting borrowing privileges to many types of library users working or studying at participating higher education libraries in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The scheme also provides a reference only service for most full-time undergraduate students.

For more information see their comprehensive website at and if you would like to join please come and speak to one of the SMU Librarians!


  1. Will definitely do that! Cheers :)

  2. will this scheme allow the use of journal articles?

  3. Re: the use of journal articles, I would check in advance with the particular library you would like to use. Using SMU as an example, we offer access to all of our print journal articles, but there is limited 'drop in' access to our e-journals for external users through the library catalogue pc's.
