Birkbeck | SCONUL Access Scheme

Birkbeck Library in Bloomsbury

Birkbeck students at Stratford can make full use the Library at Birkbeck College at Malet Street in central London.

Your Birkbeck ID/Library card is posted to you once you have uploaded a recent photo to your My Birkbeck profile.  Alternatively you can drop in to My Birkbeck Helpdesk at Malet Street and have a photo taken and your ID card will be produced on the spot.

N.B. There is NOT an inter-site library  service in operation between UEL Library Stratford Campus and Birkbeck Library in Bloomsbury so always return items back to the library you borrowed them from.
