Not all services listed in the StudyHub are available to Falmouth Partner students. Please check with your tutor if you are unsure.

Many Higher Education Institutions offer 'walk-in' access to members of the general public.

This allows you to use the library spaces for study and browse the physical collections. It is usually reference only.

In some instances, they may also provide limited access to certain electronic resources, databases and digital collections.

To find out what is available locally, please look for Visitor or Day Reader pages on the relevant institution's website.

Please note: Access is not guaranteed, and may be restricted, particularly during busy periods.

Sconul Access is a reciprocal service through which students from one member institutions have access to the library services of another member.

Unfortunately, under the terms of the scheme, Falmouth University is unable to provide membership of Sconul Access for students registered on Franchise Partner programmes.

Academic staff employed by Partner institutions should contact their Academic Partner Manager for support with Falmouth Library resources or services.

Your APM will be able to provide advice or refer the issue on to the relevant team.

Access to library resources

Academic staff directly teaching students registered on Falmouth University courses should have access to Falmouth University online resources.

These can be accessed using your Falmouth University log-in details.

Please note:

  • Falmouth University online resources are available for the purpose of teaching students on Falmouth University courses only.
  • They must not be systematically downloaded for any purpose, including the creation of physical or digital course packs.
  • They must not downloaded or redistributed to any other individual, either in printed form, by email, by social networking sites, or by uploading to document sharing sites.
