SCONUL Summer Vacation Access
Under the terms of the SCONUL Summer Vacation Access Scheme, students from other higher education institutions in the UK and Ireland whose libraries are members of the Standing Conference of National and University Libraries (SCONUL) may have access to the University of Portsmouth Library. The scheme provides for access to books and journals on open shelves. It does not permit access to electronic sources of information (though our separate Walk-in service does allow some limited access); nor does it provide for borrowing from the library.
In the case of the University of Portsmouth, the above Scheme applies throughout the year.
Potential users of the Scheme should be prepared to produce a valid Library Card from their own institution and should obtain a Day Pass at the Reception Desk in the University Library.
