Services from the Library for our Alumni

Can I still use the Library once my course finishes?

Yes - LSBU former students and staff can get free access to the Libraries by joining the Alumni society.

A limited number of PCs are available for you to use on Level 2 East of the Perry Library. Please ask at our help desks for the username and password in order to access these PCs. You can also get a 'guest' print account from the help desk which will enable you to print, copy and scan.

There is also a paid membership (£25 per year) that allows Alumni to borrow up to five books at a time.

Due to licensing restrictions we can’t offer alumni access to all of our electronic resources. However you can access some e-resources from other libraries such as the British Library or Westminster Reference Library. A limited number of resources are available within the Library buildings via our catalogue PCs.

Some general e-journal titles are also available from the London Libraries Consortium via your public library. Visit their eLibrary
