Other Libraries

For details of libraries which are prepared to offer their facilities to University of London distance learning students please see the Libraries PDF.

If no libraries in your country or region are listed, then we suggest you contact your nearest British Council Office to see if it has a library or can recommend any alternatives. You could also ask universities or colleges near you if they allow students of other universities to use their libraries, but do remember that many do not have the space or capacity to offer such a service.

Most libraries will ask you to provide proof of registration with the University of London before you can use their services. Present your student card, or virtual ISIC card, to the librarian. The Online Library can also provide a ‘Letter of Introduction’ which confirms that you are a registered student. Please note that this does not guarantee access to the collections of other libraries.
