Specialist Libraries

London is home to hundreds of specialist libraries, many of which hold collections of national importance.

Some are not open to members of the public, but there are many who are willing to allow users access to their collections if they cannot find the information they need elsewhere.

If the subject you are interested in happens to boast a London library, you may be about to discover an Aladdin's Cave on your doorstep! . 

Some specialist libraries have also joined the Libraries and Learners in London scheme, so you can gain access if you are a member of your public library. Click here for more information.

The following list is just a small sample of specialist libraries in London with public access and we hope to add many others over the next few months
