Printing

MFDs (multi-functional devices) are available throughout the Institute building and library, allowing staff and current students to print, scan and copy in both colour and black and white. All three services are offered in one stream-lined service through ISD and credit for copying and printing (scanning is free) can be obtained following the same routes. There is a cash loader machine in the library for topping up student 'print' accounts. Accounts can also be topped up online using credit cards. Information on charges, credit and general printing can be found on the ISD web pages.

IT & Audiovisual Provision

There are three Explore catalogue terminals, two in the main reading room and one in the first of the side reading rooms.

We don’t have any video playback available here nor microfiche reader. Microfiche readers are available in other nearby UCL libraries.

Inter Library Loans

The Institute Library participates in the centralised inter library loans service for UCL staff and students.
