Access resources at a library near you

SCONUL logoYork is a member of the SCONUL Access scheme, which allows you to access libraries at member universities around the UK. You'll always have reference access to use resources at the library, and some places will also let you borrow books too.

To use the scheme you'll need to register online for an account. You'll find lots more information about SCONUL Access via the Library website.

It's a good idea to check the access arrangements before you visit another library so you know what to expect when you arrive. Each library should have information for visitors on its website.

Key databases
