Q. Can I use other libraries?


Coventry University is a member of the SCONUL Access reciprocal scheme.
This scheme allows staff and students from Coventry University to visit and possibly borrow books from other UK higher education institutions.


Register online at the SCONUL website to see whether the library you wish to visit is in the scheme and what they offer.


If you wish to apply, follow the instructions on the screen. You should receive an email from Coventry University which you take to the university you wish to go to, along with your ID card.

Please note: you will not be able to access the electronic resources of the library under SCONUL Access.
To renew Sconul access you need to re-apply via the Sconul website
