Welcome to UAL Libraries

Please complete this form to register to borrow from our libraries as a SCONUL user. 

You must have SCONUL Access approval for Band A, B or C access. You'll be asked to provide your SCONUL Access approval email and a scanned image of your home institution ID card. 

What you need to know

  • You don't need to complete this form if you have SCONUL Access Band R approval as this entitles you to reference access only.
  • All SCONUL Access approved users, including those registered to borrow, must book a library visitor appointment each time they visit one of our libraries.
  • We will let you know when your library account has been created; you will then be able to borrow up to 3 items with a 3-week loan period per item.
  • You won't receive a UAL library card. Items will be loaned to you at the library information desk on production of your home institution ID.
