Coronavirus (COVID-19) update 

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to process applications for alumni membership or allow alumni access to our libraries due to space restrictions under COVID-19 guidelines.

Library Services values our relationship with Imperial alumni and we hope to re-open our services to you as soon as it is safe to do so.  

For the time being and foreseeable future however, we are obliged by COVID-19 safety guidelines to restrict access to current Imperial students, staff and NHS users only. This is to minimise occupancy (we are significantly reducing study space capacity), as well as footfall both on campus and in our libraries.  

We will keep you informed of any changes through our website.

We wish you well and look forward to welcoming you back into our libraries when it is safe to do so.  

Access resources online

In the meantime, if you would like to access selected e-journals, e-books and databases, 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.
