Library Opening During Lockdown.
The IOE Library is open. To ensure that the space is safe for students and staff to use, we've made some changes to the space and to our procedures.
To enter the library you will need:
The library is currently only open to current UCL students and staff and external borrowers who still have valid cards. Study desks can only be booked by current UCL students or staff.
The entrance to the IOE is on Level 3, 20 Bedford Way. You will not be able to access from the Woburn Square Level 4 entrance. Upon entering the building, you must scan your card in the level 3 entrance vestibule. You must also scan your card when exiting the building on Level 3.
In order to ensure social distancing, parts of our collection cannot be accessed. If you would like to borrow a book from our library, please order it via Click and Collect. You can find out more on our Click and Collect Libguide.
Please do not visit the library until you have received confirmation that your books are ready to collect.
The IOE Library is operating a one way walking system throughout in order to support safe social distancing. Please follow the signage available.

When visiting, please use the one way system around the library. Staff can help you if you need help finding something or navigating around the building.
Unless you have a valid reason for not wearing a mask, please wear a mask throughout the IOE building, and while moving around UCL campuses.
Please stay 2 meters from other people using the space.
If you feel unwell, please do not come into the library and stay home instead.
Sanitisation stations are available with handgel and desk wipes.
For more information on keeping safe on campus visit the UCL microsite.
If you only need to return books, you can do this in the book bin just inside the Level 3 Bedford Way entrance to the IOE.
Or, if you are picking up a click and collect item or have booked a study space, you can also return books using the self-service machines in the Library on Level 4. Please remember to press 'check in' on the screen when you start.
