SCONUL Access Scheme reopens

The SCONUL Access Scheme has reopened, having been suspended in 2020 because of the pandemic.


SCONUL members can visit the libraries of other HE institutions who participate in the scheme.

We’re delighted to be able to process applications from Manchester students who want to visit other HE libraries, and to welcome visiting SCONUL members from other institutions to our Library again.

If you were a SCONUL member before the Access Scheme was suspended in 2020, you must reapply before visiting another institution’s library.
