You may have graduated, but our libraries are still here for you

If you miss the smell of the books, the quiet and the access to all that knowledge, why not pay a visit to the library? Alumni membership is free and simple to set up, and you can access any of our campus libraries.

Apply for library membership

Apply for full alumni membership of the library. You can do that online via Imperial Plexus or on the library webpages. You must be able to provide a UK address if you want to borrow books and you’ll need to show identification.

The library staff will verify your alumni status. If you are planning to visit one of our libraries during the evening or at the weekend, please contact the Alumni Relations Office in advance. We will send you a validation email to bring with you.

You’ll receive a library card valid for one year, and renewable on request.

Access resources online

Easy! Just login to Imperial Plexus and get instant access to lots of online resources. The list is limited to those permitted by the terms of our licences but we are working hard in partnership with the library team to get you access to as many resources as possible.
