SCONUL Access is a scheme which allows many university library users to use or borrow books and journals at other libraries which belong to the scheme. The scheme covers most of the university libraries in the UK and Ireland. 

If you are:

  • a member of staff (both academic and support staff) on an open or fixed term contract
  • a postgraduate research student registered for a PhD, MPhil or similar qualification
  • a part-time, distance learning and placement student
  • or a full-time postgraduate

and your university or college is a member of the scheme, you may be able to use and borrow from the library at the University of Salford.

If you are

  • a full-time undergraduate student

and your university or college is a member of the scheme, you may be able to use the other resources available at the University of Salford.
