Senate House Library joins SCONUL access scheme

Senate House Library is the central library of the University of London and as such, one of the largest libraries in London, with outstanding collections in the arts, humanities and social sciences. We have over 2 million books, more than 20,000 journal titles, rare books, archives and manuscripts, and expert help.

We are now a member of the SCONUL access scheme (Band A). Academic staff and individuals studying for a research degree (e.g. PhD, MPhil) at British universities can now gain free borrowing rights with the Library. To join, potential users should present us with a valid SCONUL access card. For academic staff and research students who do not have an access card, reference access is available.

Other types of membership are also available.
