LSE staff and students
If you're a member of LSE you can contact us to let us know what your archives and special collections needs are and we will do our best to help. This could involve advice, scanning or an appointment to visit and use material in the Library.
Contact us for further information and to arrange access.
Members of the public, other institutions and LSE alumni
Potential visitors needing to access archives or collections unique to LSE should apply using this form. It can take 10 working days for us to respond to applications. We advise you not to make travel bookings in advance.
In the meantime, you can still access our digitised collections, or explore our collection highlights to find out more about our archives and special collections.
Our team of curators can help you according to their area of expertise.
You can also send us any general enquiries, and we'll do our best to help.
