London library places and spaces, Our London library features resources from a range of subject areas, including education, business and health.

If you're a Teacher Training student, you can also access the Tower Hamlets Schools Library Service which has an extensive collection of materials to support your teaching practice.

We want our library spaces to feel inclusive, welcoming and considerate of all members of our university community. To this end, we ask our users to check out this page of ways you can help us achieve this: Library Etiquette
