Sconul Access scheme

The Courtauld Libraries participates in the Sconul Access Scheme under ‘Band A only’ – meaning that reciprocal access to other institutions is open to Courtauld PhD/research students and staff only.

Key information about SCONUL Access for Courtauld PHD/Research and staff

Do not visit another institution until your application has been approved

All information about applying to the scheme is available on the SCONUL website. Please read carefully and fill in the online application form.

Once you’ve applied online the Courtauld Libraries will process your application. You will then receive a confirmation email that you will be able to take to other libraries. Before you visit any other library you must check the visitor access in place (for example, access may vary throughout the year due to demands on study space and so on), and any procedure or requirements for booking appointments (institutional practice may vary from place to place).

You must also reapply for library access if any previous approval has expired.
