Stamp Collection for RNIB

The library collects stamps for the RNIB Used Stamps Appeal. If you have any used stamps, we would be very grateful if you send them to the library, by post or in person.

All the money raised goes to the RNIB, supporting people with sight loss.

UCL Staff and Students ID cards

We would like to remind UCL staff and students (including hospital staff with honorary UCL contracts) of the importance of picking up their UCL ID card:

This card is different from the ICH ID card, which is only of use at the ICH.The UCL card is recognised throughout UCL.Without it staff and students will not be able to access many library services and will not be able to gain entry to many UCL buildings including libraries.

Staff and students need the card to: borrow books and other materials, to request inter-library loans and to request items which are out on loan.Without this card they will not be able to use printing, scanning and photocopying facilities at UCL libraries, including at our library.

Cards are issued by Security Systems in the Andrew Huxley Building.The office is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 4.45pm.Please bring one form of personal identification (e.g. bank card, driving licence, ICH or GOSH card etc.)…

Changes to weekend access times

From the 10th January 2014 the ICH Building will close at 9pm on Saturdays and Sundays, rather than 11pm as previously.

Readers working late at weekends are advised to leave the library at 8.45pm at the latest.

These arrangements are being trialed throughout January, more information will follow in February.

UCL staff and students can now use EndNote offsite via Desktop@UCL Anywhere or Staff WTS without having to purchase a personal license.
