Please help us by:

  • bringing your Birkbeck ID card with you. It is needed to activate the turnstile at the entrance and for borrowing;
  • bringing your Birkbeck username and password with you. This is needed to use the PCs in the Library, to access the internet and electronic resources in the eLibrary;
  • turning off your mobile phone - we get more complaints about this than anything else!
