LCF Library closure and resources information Summer 2023

In preparation for the move to Stratford summer 2023, LCF Library will close from Friday 14 July and open Monday 11 September to enable our library collections, fixtures and fittings to be relocated to Stratford. We aim to minimise any inconvenience to our library users.

Using the libraries

During our closure, staff and students with valid ID cards can continue to access other UAL college libraries for borrowing and returning library items. Please check their opening hours and locations.

You can use the Library Search to search the catalogue, check your library account, access ebooks, find articles and resources on your subject.

Returning LCF Library items - borrowed LCF items can be returned at LCF before 14 July. Any items returned by post after this date will be removed from your library account when the library reopens.

Borrowing - the borrowing allowance for LCF Library staff and students will be increased to 40 items from 9 June.

Reservations - Whilst the Library is closed, LCF Library will be removed from the college library collection list when you place a reservation, however you can reserve and borrow items from other UAL Libraries. During the closure period, LCF users can reserve 10 items at a time from  9 June to 25 September.

ASK -if you have any questions, please check our FAQs, chat or email us.

Inter Library Loans - Staff and researchers can continue to make requests for British Library books articles from their library accounts through Library Search. Requests for books can be made and you can nominate which UAL library site you collect from.

We have also created a padlet with further useful information.
