Using Other Libraries 

Our Using Other Libraries page has information about other libraries that you can use, both in the Greater Manchester area, and wherever you are. 


The University of Bolton Library is a member of the national SCONUL Access scheme which allows part-time, distance or placement students (on a placement of ten weeks or more), full-time taught postgraduate students, permanent members of staff and postgraduate research students the opportunity to register with and borrow from other university libraries. Full-time undergraduates are entitled to reference only access under this scheme.

The SCONUL Access scheme has been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please see our Using Other Libraries page for the latest updates.
