Access to the Library is for students and staff of the University who hold a Library card, as well as registered external members. At certain times of year we may be able to facilitate one-off access. We would advise contacting our Enquiry Service in advance, either by telephone 0116 252 2448 or email

If your friend is a student at another University they may be eligible to join as a member through the SCONUL Access scheme. There is more information about joining the Library here.

All external members and visitors are required to register as a Library user and to abide by the Library regulations.  Please note that we are unable to offer external users access to eResources other than the Library catalogue due to licensing restrictions.
