Finding resources

You can search the holdings of all of our libraries using the library catalogue, and in addition, find articles, e-journals and databases. Library staff can advise on supplying material through inter-library loans, or by directing to you to specialist collections outside of UAL.

Archives and Special Collections

The libraries hold special collections and archives that can inspire and inform your research. These are located in the University Archives and Special Collections Centre at the London College of Communication, as well as in the college libraries. You can also access collections that are in the colleges, LCF Archive, and the CSM Museum and Study Collection.
