The Perry Library is only open to students, staff or visitors and alumni currently taking part in study as part of formal education or training during the November Lockdown. We are currently closed to SCONUL visitors.
Customers with paid 'Visitor Membership' ID cards are now able to access the Perry Library. Memberships have been extended to make up for the time lost while we were closed.
We are not taking new membership applications at this time.
You will be asked to supply your contact details for the purposes of track and trace. Face Coverings are required unless you have an exemption.
Book returns are via the book bin at the entrance to the library.
See our Visiting the library page for information about staying safe on campus.

Yes if you are a student at another University who are members of the SCONUL access scheme then you can apply for access to LSBU library
Make your application using the SCONUL access website - your application will go through to your own University library who will decide whether or not to approve it so please make sure you don't have any outstanding fines or overdue loans with them!
Once they approve your application you'll receive a permission email
Please bring this to our help desk here at LSBU library along with your ID card from your University and we'll register you for an account with us
We'll also take your picture to give you an LSBU ID card which will give you access to the Library on your future visits
You need to register with us when our help desk is open but once you have your LSBU ID card you can come in any time we are open
Depending on what Band of the scheme your University allocates you to you may have reference only access (use of our spaces but not borrowing) or you may have borrowing access (borrowing of up to 4 books at a time)
You can ask at our help desks for a 'guest' account to allow you to print and copy in our libraries
