Library Guides

Online Delivery of Library and Archive Services: Welcome


Welcome to The Library and Archives Service. In response to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 our services are currently running predominantly online. We provide access to an extensive collection of e-books, e-journals and databases to support your study and research. 

From 4th January to 14th May 2021, Cavendish, Harrow and Marylebone libraries will be open for study via Book a Space as follows:

Monday to Friday - 11.00 to 19.00

Saturday - 11.00 to 18.00

Please be aware that the unpredictable nature of the global situation means that these hours are subject to change.

We have friendly and approachable teams based online.  Our online service is staffed by real people; they are the people you meet everyday in the library that you visit. 


Borrowing and Returning Books

It is not possible to borrow physical items currently, but our online team is ready to help you find alternatives.

We are asking continuing students to hold onto their books until normal business resumes so as to reduce the risk to students and staff. All items on loan will automatically renew until we are able to accept returns.

If you are a completed student, please contact us via Library Chat or to discuss how to return your books.

Please keep an eye on our FAQ and News pages as well as Westminster's coronavirus response page for updates.

If you have any questions please contact us via Library Chat or
