Visiting other university libraries

Did you know that you can visit other university libraries closer to home? SCONUL Access is a reciprocal scheme that allows students to borrow from most higher education libraries in the UK and Ireland. For full-time undergraduate students this is for reference only.

Apply online via the SCONUL website – watch our short video to see how – but pay any outstanding fines on your Leeds Beckett Library account beforehand. You must use your university email address to apply. The website also lists the university libraries you can visit, their opening hours and any restrictions.

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. Your email will tell you whether you have reference access or borrowing rights.

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. You will need your Leeds Beckett University credentials to connect.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for additional support 24/7. You can also search our frequently asked questions on the Distance Learners - Offsite web page.

We’d love to hear from you!
