Joining and Borrowing

All Birkbeck staff, both Teaching and Professional & Support Services can join the Library. We should receive your details automatically shortly after you join Birkbeck.

Your Birkbeck ID card is used as your Library card (it needs to have a Library barcode printed on it). If your ID card has no barcode, bring it to the Library together with a small (passport-style) photo. Staff without Birkbeck ID cards may still join the Library by filling in the application form and  presenting a contract or letter of employment from Birkbeck, some form of photo ID and a small photograph (contracts must show the start and end dates of your employment). You can borrow up to 20 items at any one time. 3 week and 1 week loans can be renewed if another Library user has not requested them.
