This page contains links to a range of resources that will support your visit to the Library.

From 1 August, the Library moves to a new search system, Library Search replacing the Library Catalogue and Summon.  

We’re still in the process of migrating the accounts of some users to our new Library Search system. It is not 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 Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm, or by contacting us on

We’re anticipating that full online services for all users will be available from the end of September. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
