Using other University Libraries

Did you know that you can visit other University libraries closer to home? The majority of university libraries in the UK and Ireland belong to a reciprocal borrowing scheme called SCONULAccess.

This enables students to access university libraries nearer to their home.  You can apply online, see this short video guide on how to apply for SCONULAccess.

Leeds Beckett Library staff will authorise your application by email within 3 working days. Once you have received this, take it (either in print or on your mobile) plus your Campus Card to the library you want to visit (if you haven’t been sent your student card yet please contact your course administrator).  Your email will tell you whether you have reference access or borrowing rights.  Click here for more information on using other libraries.

SCONUL Access doesn’t usually give you access to PCs and electronic resources but you can access the eduroam wireless network in other universities so you’ll still be able to access Leeds Beckett electronic resources, the Library website and MyBeckett. Remember to connect to eduroam before you leave Leeds Beckett.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for support 24/7.

We’d love to hear from you!
