Certain ebooks currently unavailable

British Library

Do you want to use another library?

You can access other university libraries via the SCONUL Access scheme. Staff, postgraduate, part time, distance and placement students can usually borrow from these libraries. Full time undergraduates can use them for reference. More information is available on our Using Other Libraries page, including a video on how to apply.

Welcome to Offsite

It’s great to see that so many of you have registered with Offsite recently. Now why not take the next step by trying out the online resources or requesting some books? Now would also be a good time to register for SCONUL Access to other university libraries.


Students registered with Offsite borrow up to 8 items for 4 weeks

In a previous post we explained how to request books from Offsite, but did you know that you can borrow up to 8 items and keep standard loan items for 4 weeks?

Did you know you can use other university libraries?

Is there another university closer to you than Leeds Met? If you’re a distance learning student you can borrow books from most of the higher education libraries in the UK and Ireland via the SCONUL Access scheme.
