Going on placement over the summer vacation?

Are you going on placement over the summer vacation? Would it be helpful to access other university libraries? If the answer is yes, come and see us at the Service Desk and we can issue you with a SCONUL Access card.

SCONUL Access is the largest scheme of its kind in the UK and Ireland. Staff, research students, part-time, distance learners, students on placements and taught postgraduates can apply for borrowing privileges under the scheme. Don't worry if you do not fall into these categories as reference-only access is possible - and sometimes all you need!

A large majority of universities have signed up to the scheme such as Edinburgh University, Glasgow University, Stirling University, Robert Gordon University as well as Manchester University, Birmingham University and many more... For a full list of participating libraries go to: http://www.access.sconul.ac.uk/members.

Application forms are available from the Service Desk or can be downloaded at: http://www.access.sconul.ac.uk/users_info/application_form_pdf.

Please bear in mind that this form needs to be authorised and signed by a member of LRC staff before you go!
