Using SCONUL Access
Don’t forget, you can join and borrow books from other local libraries under the SCONUL access scheme! It is free and may be faster than asking for a book as an inter-site loan. Check the SCONUL access handout or ask at the GCU London library.
What is the difference between inter-library loans and inter-site loans?
An inter-site loan is for GCU London students to borrow items from GCU Glasgow. An inter-library loan is used to get items which aren’t available from GCU. These are supplied by the British Library and will be posted to GCU London (books) or your home address (journal articles).
What is the fastest way to get an item which is not in stock at GCU London?
Use SCONUL access! It is always faster to go to a local library and borrow the book from them. You will be able to photocopy journals articles too. You can find a full list of local libraries on the SCONUL access web page at http://www.access.sconul.ac.uk/
