Using the British Library

There are times when the material you need is not available at the University of Greenwich. You can use the Document Supply service, or visit other libraries via the SCONUL Access scheme. Where the information required is more specialist such as that required for postgraduate research, visiting the British Library Reading Rooms may be the best option. Information about the Reading Rooms at St Pancras and Boston Spa are available on the British Library web page: http://www.bl.uk/reshelp/inrrooms/readingrooms.html. The video below explains how to register with the British Library. Detailed information is also available from the web page.
