Store Service Closure
Owing to recent events, the Store Service will be closed from 5pm Friday 20th March until further notice with the last possible date to request items being Thursday 19th March 12pm.
Due to all other UCL library sites closing, all Store Requests will be delivered to the Science Library (DMS Watson Building) in Malet Place – regardless of your chosen pick-up location. You will have until Friday 5pm to pick-up you items, after that the libraries, along with the Store Service will be closed until further notice.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Before sending the form
- UCL users - send your request via Explore
Did you know…? If you are a UCL student or affiliate, it’s much easier to request a Stores item from your library account. Simply log in to Explore with your username and password, search for the item, and click Request next to the item details.
Advantages of Explore
Using Explore provides users with additional benefits:
- Choose your pick-up location from any of our libraries (not just those listed on the form below)
- You'll receive an email when your item arrives!
- UCL copyright advice
If you are photocopying a part of a thesis then you need to adhere to the copyright law, e.g. you can only copy 5% of the thesis or one chapter, which ever is the greater.
- To learn more about this see our Copyright Advice web pages
- Digitisation of theses - view as PDF
Most theses from 1990 to present are available to view as pdfs via Proquest (paper copies are still available). Please follow the link below:
