Our libraries

Welcome to The Library and Archives Service. In response to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 our services are currently running online. Harrow, Marylebone and Cavendish Libraries remain open with a limited number of study spaces which must be booked in advance.

Click and collect services and postal loans are suspended during the current lockdown until 1 March 2021 in order to minimise travel and risk for students and staff. We will keep this under review over the next few weeks as Government guidance evolves. 

We offer access to a broad range of electronic resources which is constantly growing. We are still here to support you and have designed a Guide to Library Services During COVID-19 where you will find all the information you need about using and accessing services, collections and help during this time.

For opening hours, collections, contact details, accessibility information and more, visit our individual library pages:
