Information for Non-UCL Library visitors: Services for External Visitors

UCL Explore PCs

Explore is UCL Library Services' single search tool for finding journals, books, full-text articles, archive material and much more. Whether you're looking for items on your reading list or information for a project or research, you'll find it in Explore and you get instant access to any full-text we subscribe to.

Several PCs are available in the UCL Institute of Education Library premises to access Explore. There is no printing from the PCs, but users can save pdf documents to USB sticks
