Visiting the library

LSHTM students and staff can visit the library at any time during our opening hours. Please bring your LSHTM ID card with you to access the library. If you are a distance learning student, you may need to contact your course administrator in advance to arrange for a card to be printed in advance of your visit.

LSHTM alumni are also very welcome to visit the library. Please email to arrange access.

If you are external to LSHTM, please see our library membership page for information about access, including SCONUL membership and Access25 schemes. Please email with any queries in advance of your visit.
