Library Access is a browser extension for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox that makes it easier to access electronic resource content courtesy of The University of Manchester Library.
When you are off-campus, you can use the extension to read electronic journal articles, e-books, reviews and other online material provided by the Library without having to visit the Library website first.
For more details and set up instructions see the 'Library Access' page:
The University of Manchester Library is one of the largest subscribers to e-journals and databases in the UK but we don't have access to everything.
If you live in the UK, we can provide you with loans of books which are not held by us, but which are available from the British Library Document Supply Centre.
Visit the Document Supply and Inter-Library Loans webpages for more information.
If you're in the UK or Ireland, you can access academic libraries in your local area through the SCONUL Access scheme.
You can apply for SCONUL access through their website. Once you receive a confirmation email, take it along with a copy of your University of Manchester ID card to the library you want to visit.
As a distance learning student you are very welcome to come and visit the University of Manchester in person.
Full details of our library locations and opening hours are available on the Library website. Remember to bring your University of Manchester ID card with you when you visit.
