LSE staff and students
Our building is open for LSE staff and students for the purpose of research and study. You do not need to book a space to enter.
LSE alumni are very welcome to use the Library.
Use your LSE Alumni card to gain access. Visit the Alumni Centre on campus if you don't have a current card.
Members of the public and other insitutions
If you want to access archives or collections unique to LSE, you should apply for access. It can take 10 working days for us to respond to applications. We advise you not to make travel bookings in advance.
