Access to the Business School library is card controlled. Only Business School Students and Staff can access the library using their Durham University campus cards.

Flexible-learning students visiting Durham for seminars or any other reason will have access to both the Business School Library and all other University libraries. Registering with SCONUL Access allows most flexible-learning students to access university libraries in their home area. Durham University students wanting to use other university libraries in the UK and Ireland should follow the application instructions 'How to apply for access' for Visiting Other Academic Libraries under the SCONUL Access scheme.

Non-UK students can request a letter from the Global Learning Centre that will enable them to use many non-UK university libraries.
