Our SCONUL borrowing entitlements are as follows:

  • Band A: Staff and research students, can borrow up to ten items
  • Band B: Part-time, distance learning and placement students, can borrow up to ten items
  • Band C: Full-time taught postgraduates, can borrow up to ten items
  • Band R: Institutions are able to offer reference access to any groups of users not covered by the other bands

For bands A, B and C, short-term loans, from overnight to 7-day loans, are excluded, though 3-day loan journals can be borrowed.

Full-time undergraduates are not offered borrowing privileges under the scheme but are granted reference access to those member libraries which offer Band B and Band R.

For information on how SCONUL defines each of these groups of users, see the SCONUL Access website.

University of Liverpool students who are using other libraries through SCONUL Access should enquire about their entitlement at the library they are visiting.
