UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology



The Queen Square Library has a collection of over 10,000 books. The majority of our books are in print format although some online books are available (see the ebooks page). Recently purchased books are listed on our website.

How to find a book in the Queen Square Library

  • First, search Explore (the library catalogue) to find out if we have purchased the book and to locate the shelfmark.
  • Our classification scheme will help you to find the topics you need.

If a book has the location 'Neurology Store' it will be an older book, kept in our local store. Please contact us to request an item from the Neurology Store. If a book has the location 'UCL Stores', it is kept in the main UCL Stores in Essex and should be requested via the Stores Service using the Store Request Form.

Borrowing a book from the Queen Square Library

Registered users may borrow books - see our Services page for more details.

    Is the book available online?

    • ebook collections have been bought by the NHS at a national level for NHS staff and also by the university for UCL staff & students (please note that most will require you to log in).
    • many, but not all, of UCL's ebooks are listed in Explore (the library catalogue), and you can choose to limit a search to ebooks only. For those items not yet listed in the catalogue, you should visit the UCL ebooks page which provides information about the packages available.

    Do you want us to the buy the book for the Library?

    • We welcome suggestions about books to purchase for the Library. Please check Explore (the library catalogue) first to make sure that we don't already have the book(s) and then visit our book suggestion page. Wherever possible we will buy the books you suggest, but we are constrained by the limits of our budget. We will usually give higher priority to books that are of interest to more than one person.

    Is the book held in another library?

    • Search for books held by libraries outside UCL via each library's catalogue. A list of key libraries can be found via our other libraries page (including the British Library, Wellcome Library, BMA etc.)
    • To request the loan of a book from another library use the Interlibrary Loans service. This service is available to registered library users based in Queen Square and Wakefield Street (including IoN staff & students, NHNN staff, and UCL staff based in Queen Square). For more information about the service see the Interlibrary Loans page. Please note that a charge is made for this service.

    Books with CD-ROMs and DVDs

    Some books arrive with a disc inside which can be borrowed for viewing by registered library users for the same period as the associated book. Please ask for the disc at the library desk. It is not possible to use the discs on a Library computer so you will need to have your own computer with a disc-drive.

    Each disc was tested when it was received However, the lifespan of digital media is limited and software can become obsolete over time, so we cannot guarantee that the media will work. This particularly applies to older items.
