How to access other University Libraries

Did you know that you can visit other University libraries closer to home?

The majority of university libraries in the UK and Ireland belong to a reciprocal borrowing scheme called SCONULAccess.

This enables students to access university libraries nearer to their home.  You can apply online, see this short video guide on how to apply for SCONULAccess. Your application will be processed in the Library and an authorisation email sent to you. Take the email along with your Leeds Beckett student card to the university library you wish to access (if you haven’t been sent your student card yet please contact your course administrator). Click here for more information on using other libraries.

If you have any queries, please do contact Offsite or the Library for additional support 24/7.

Finding, using and accessing eBooks

Hello everyone.  We hope you are settling in OK. These first few weeks really fly by!

You might even be starting to think about accessing Library resources so you can start reading and researching.

eBooks are a great digital alternative to a print book, especially as they can provide you with instant online access to your resources whenever and wherever you are! You can find eBooks by searching Discover or the Library Catalogue – these can be accessed through MyBeckett.

In your Discover search, look for the eBook icon

 

 

 

In the Library Catalogue, select the purple link to open this electronic resource, for example:

 

You can either read eBooks online or download them for a short period of time, after which access to the eBook will automatically expire.

For more information on eBooks, how to find them and use them, why not see our eBooks webpages?

We’re always happy to hear from you, and happy to help.
