- User who can register to borrow - please check our list of who can register with the library before your visit. Holders of ION, NHNN, UCL and UCLH identity cards may register to borrow and those based in Queen Square will be registered as 'home users' of the Library. Users from NHS Trusts with which UCL has a Service Level Agreement may also register to borrow. To register, please bring your ID to the library. We will give you a brief introductory tour of the Library. Your identity card must be available for inspection at all times and must always be presented in order to borrow items.
- Visitors and other users - Visitors must provide proof of
identity and show a need to use our specialised
collections. Visitors are admitted for reference only and must sign the visitors book on arrival. Please note that visitors are expected to be largely self-sufficient in
their use of the library; we are happy to offer a brief orientation and
introduction to the library, but we cannot offer training or undertake
any research on your behalf. Please note: UCL alumni may use the library for reference only; we offer some additional services to members of the Queen Square Alumnus Association (further details are available on our Alumnus page).
The library is located on the 1st floor and is accessible via a lift. Library staff are happy to help you with access to materials as far as possible, please contact us for more information.

Recycling in the Library
The Library tries to recycle as much as possible. The Library is covered by the Queen Square Division Waste Recycling Project which is managed by UCLH. There are several waste bins in the library with notices detailing what can/cannot be disposed of. Please place paper, cardboard, newspapers, cans, bottles and packaging in the bins with clear plastic liners. Please do not place food waste or food-contaminated waste in these bins – such items must be placed in the bins with black liners. See library notices for more details.
