Other Higher Education Institutions
We are able to offer limited access to members of institutions participating in the schemes below. Please note:
Undergraduates and taught postgraduates
Access is for reference only during King's summer vacation dates via the SCONUL Summer Vacation Access scheme. This year the scheme runs from 3rd June until 13th September. This scheme does not apply at other times of year. You must have your home institution library card with you as ID. Please check university term dates and Library opening hours before you travel.
Open University undergraduates and taught postgraduates
Open University undergraduates and taught postgraduates may apply for reference or for borrowing as an independent researcher. Please click here for details. Please also check with the Open University about claiming back the cost of a borrowing ticket.
Research postgraduates and staff
