Using other libraries


This scheme allows academic staff, postgraduates (full and part-time), online, part-time undergraduates and placement students to visit and borrow from participating university libraries across the UK and Ireland. SCONUL Access also provides a reference only service for most undergraduates. Complete the application online. Local university libraries such as Dundee and Abertay are members of this scheme.
