What is SCONUL Access?

SCONUL Access is a reciprocal scheme which allows many university library users to access books, journals and study space at other libraries which belong to the scheme. Sometimes books may be borrowed too. The University of Northampton does take part in the scheme. We recommend you find out more about SCONUL Access before applying.

I am a University of Northampton student / staff member and I want to visit another university library.

Apply for SCONUL Access and we will process your application. You will be contacted with further details on how to take part. Please be patient as we may be processing a large number of applications following the post-pandemic reintroduction of the scheme. If you have any questions about applying for SCONUL Access, check out Frequently asked questions about SCONUL Access or email library.membership@northampton.ac.uk.
