Library Services


Who we are

UCL Library Services consists of multiple libraries and learning spaces located across London, covering a wide range of specialist subjects.

Subjects covered in our libraries range from bio-medicine and science to arts, architecture and archaeology, plus we have learning spaces in Senate House and the Graduate Hub. Our digital library is one of the best in the world, and we manage UCL Discovery, the institutional repository which enables the world to access our researchers' work for free. We've also started the UK's first completely open access university press, UCL Press. Together, UCL Library Services is at the heart of providing the information to support UCL's academic excellence and research that addresses real-world problems, as set out in the UCL Research Strategy, Delivering a Culture of Wisdom.
