Practical info about using the London library, and about what we offer

 

Library rules

Please note the library rules:

  • Water is allowed anywhere in the library

  • Other drinks are only allowed on the ground floor

  • Food is not allowed anywhere in the library

  • Please do not make or receive phone calls anywhere in the library: please go right out to the cafe before you begin answering even a short call

  • Because hot drinks are allowed there, dissertations may not be read on the ground floor.  The same applies to a very small number of other resources such as valuable historic books: we will let you know about these at the time you request them.  

  • The top floor is for silent study only.
