Library Guides

Online Delivery of Library and Archive Services: Welcome


Welcome to the library. In response to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 we have moved our services online. We remain dedicated to providing access to a broad range of electronic resources and support at this challenging time.  

All physical libraries are currently closed but we are working closely with our Estates colleagues to assess Harrow, Marylebone and Cavendish Libraries for very limited re-opening from 5th October. As soon as further information is available, we will inform our users via Twitter (@uniwestlib) and this guide.

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. 

Explore these pages and take a look at our Welcome video to find out more about our services.


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
