If you need to use archives or special collections unique to LSE — 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.
LSE alumni are very welcome to use the Library.
Use your LSE alumni card to gain access. Visit the Alumni Centre if you don't have a current card.

LSE staff and students can freely access the Library using their LSE ID card.
