During your studies you can make a number of Inter-Library Loan requests for free, where if we don't have something you need for your studies in stock we will try and source it for you temporarily from another institution.

Access other University Libraries.

The SCONUL Access scheme allows you to apply to use the resources of other Libraries in the scheme. Please be aware that every SCOUNL institution sets their own levels of access and eligibility and that all access is at the discretion of the 'guest' institution not the one you are currently studying with, so consider contacting them directly for more information.
A list of  libraries participating in SCONUL can be found here 

SCONUL is primarily aimed at: 

• Research students
• Postgraduate students
• Part time students
• Full time undergraduate students (reference use only)
• Students on placement for longer than six weeks (for the placements duration)

Even if this does not describe you consider applying anyway, as you could be eligible for some limited access. Note: Please allow 5 working days for your application to be approved.

If you wish to use our resources once you have joined SCONUL, please present your confirmation email and home institutes library card at the main Marjon Library desk.
