SCONUL Access Scheme

If you are a student from another University in the UK or the Republic of Ireland you may be interested in the SCONUL Access scheme.

Post-graduate, part-time, distance, and placement students can apply to join the scheme to borrow materials from the University of Derby libraries at Kedleston Road and Chesterfield. Members will also be provided with limited access to computing facilities.

Full-time undergraduate students may be able to join the scheme to use the University's resources for reference only.

Please note there is no access to the FE Libraries at Buxton and Leek, and the Britannia Mill Library in Derby
