Apply for SCONUL Access to other libraries

SCONUL Access is a scheme which allows many university library users to use study spaces or resources at other higher education libraries which belong to the scheme.

  • You can apply yourself via the SCONUL Access website
  • Applications are approved by Leeds Trinity University Library
  • Your application will only be approved if you are in good standing with Leeds Trinity University Library (i.e. you owe less than £10 in fines and have no loans overdue by 28 days or more). You will receive an email with further details on how to take part in the scheme. 
  • Full-time undergraduates will only get reference access to other libraries; staff and postgraduate students may be able to borrow books.
