There are two categories of membership to the library, Institute membership and Society Membership.
Institute membership is for both UK and overseas postgraduate students and academics. This membership is free of charge, but is for reference use of the library only (see Who can borrow books?). To apply, please ask for a form from the library desk. If you are unsure as to whether you qualify for institute membership, please email the library or call the library desk on 020 7862 8709.
Society membership is for anyone who wishes to borrow books, including academics, undergraduate students, postgraduate students, private individuals (at the discretion of the librarian) or institutions. There are two societies: the Hellenic Society and the Roman Society, both of which take annual subscriptions.
For prices and membership forms, see the Hellenic Society and Roman Society websites. Please note that before you can use the library, you must have the form signed by a sponsor (a tutor or academic). You may hand this in at the library desk. Please see Who can borrow books?
To apply for either of these and to collect your library card, please come to the library desk, email the library or call 020 7862 8709.
