UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health


Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health



The Library provides information support and information skills training for staff and students at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health and the staff of Great Ormond Street Hospital. These pages provide information on all aspects of Library services.

The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health Library has now reopened. 

The library is open for users for pre-booked study space and  Click and Collect. The need to keep customers and team members safe and comply with the government guidelines for Higher Education libraries means that we have a reduction in study spaces, opening hours and a one-way system, which means that customers are no longer free to walk in and browse.  

  •  You must use the online seat booking system to book a place before visiting the libraries.
  • You must use the Click and Collect system to obtain books from our library collections. These two systems are available for registered UCL Library members only and  GOSH   staff who have registered for the Library.
  • Please see our FAQs for further details.
  • Library staff are also continuing to provide training and and enquiry services remotely. Please contact us at  ich.library@ucl.ac.uk.
  • For updates and more information about library services and support, please check the UCL Library Services web site.
  • Please also note that many more of study spaces are available in other UCL Locations such as 1-19 Torrington Place, Bidborough House and Ramsay Hall. Please check individual Opening Hours for more information.
