Borrowing for visitors

If you have an overdue loan you will no longer be charged a fine – but you won’t be able to borrow anything else until your overdue is either returned or renewed.

Books that have been requested by another Library user must be returned.

My Account

 

Please note  we are still in the process of migrating the accounts of some users to our new Library Search system. If you are an LSE Alumni or external borrower it isn’t currently possible for you to access your account details, to request items, or to renew existing loans online.

You can still access all of these services in person at the Library service counters, by phoning 020 7955 7229 during working hours, or by contacting us via library.enquiries@lse.ac.uk

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

Everyone who is able to borrow books from the Library will be able to access their account on-line via the link on Library Search.

Visitor members with borrowing will need to use their Visitor log-details.

Accessing your account allows you to:

  • see what you have borrowed
  • see the dates items are due for return
  • see a list of items you have reserved and if they are available for collection
  • and, importantly, to renew your books
