The Library is open to all London staff and students. It’s located on the ground floor of the Hudson building and provides access to a reference collection of key texts along with all electronic resources you could need to make the best of every assignment, seminar, or lecture.
All of the previous Covid-19 restrictions are now lifted but we continue to encourage a safe environment for students and staff so the library team may still wear their face coverings at times. Cleansing wipes and hand sanitisers are still available for use to keep study spaces and equipment clean.
# Study Spaces
The library has a small number of group study tables where students can work together on projects. Individual study spaces can also be found elsewhere in the building.
# Book Requests
The library has a huge collection of e-books and e-journals but there may still be some items that are only available in print. If you need a printed copy of a book that is on loan, you can place a request through the library online catalogue, 'Locate' When the item is available for loan, you will be notified by email to collect it from the library.
# Returning Books
Please return books to the student information/reception desk. It is advisable to check your emails on a regular basis for notifications about books that you need to return.
