Through various cooperative schemes UCC staff and postgraduate students can gain access to the Libraries of other third level institutions. There are two main schemes:
- ALCID which allows consultation in all Irish Universities and some other Irish third level institutions.
- SCONUL Access allows borrowing from participating libraries in the UK and Ireland.
- CorkPAL is an access scheme between participating libraries in the Cork region.
- MusicPAL facilitates access to music information and materials available across a broad range of libraries and archives throughout the island of Ireland.
Your entitlement depends on whether you are a member of staff or a student. Student access further depends on the level of degree for which you are studying.
