Other library and archive catalogues


London Metropolitan Archives holds records and archives relating to London which, when taken together, constitute a history of the city and its surroundings over a period of almost 1000 years. Note: this should not be confused with the Archives of London Metropolitan University (which is one of this institution's Special Collections)

Library Hub Discover offers access to details of materials held in a number of UK national, university and specialist libraries. If it is realistic to do so, you could consider visiting another library to view your required item - be sure to look up their opening times and visitor policy first to be certain that the item is going to be available to you on the day of your visit. Alternatively, having checked first that this University does not hold the item, you could use the information from Library Hub Discover to place an Interlibrary loan request.
