Current exhibition

Not with words but with things: objects and their meaning in an academic library. 18 January – 22 March.

This exhibition showcases remarkable objects held by the Library, to support teaching, to record the history of the University of London, to honour their original owners, or kept as curiosities.


Movement of collections: January – April 2016

As a result of redevelopment work within Senate House, some of the Library’s collections that are currently held in closed access stores on-site will be moving to off-site third party storage. During this period we will let you know which books are being moved, with regular updates on the website and social media. The catalogue will be altered to reflect new locations for relevant material. Learn more about why the moves are taking place, or view a detailed schedule.
