SCONUL Access is a reciprocal access scheme between most university libraries in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. It enables staff and students to use other libraries free of charge.

There are four categories of membership referred as Bands A, B, C and R.  Member libraries choose which band(s) to support.

Queen’s University supports Band A which means that the Library only accepts applications from staff and post-graduate research students from other SCONUL institutions. As this is a reciprocal agreement it also means that membership of the scheme is restricted to Queen’s staff and to Queen’s students registered for a PhD.

Band A SCONUL Access members can obtain a Queen’s University library card by registering at the Borrower Services Desk in The McClay Library on the main university campus. You will need to bring a copy of your SCONUL Access email verification and your staff/student card from your home institution.
