Accessing other libraries

  • Relevant libraries include: SOAS, SSEES, King's College, and the British Library
  • Information regarding access for LSE staff and students can be found on the Using other libraries page.
  • LSE students are entitled to borrow from Senate House Library - take your LSE ID card along with you. This also gives you access to their online databases.
  • Borrowing from other libraries is possible for LSE part-time masters students, research students and staff using the SCONUL access card that permits borrowing  from member institutions.  Apply online.  Borrowing is also available from SOAS for LSE masters students, research students and staff.

Citing and referencing

  • Once you have found your references, remember that you must cite them correctly. Refer to the Departmental handbook or your tutor for guidance on which style to use. 
  • If you have a large number of references keep track of them using EndNote or Mendeley bibliographic software. These can be used with Word to format your references automatically. You can also export references automatically from many online databases. The Library offers regular training courses on using EndNote and there are support materials in Moodle.
