Between Saturday 11th June and Saturday 24th September, the Institute of Archaeology Library will be working on summer vacation opening hours. These are:
• Monday – Friday: 09:30 – 21:00
• Saturday: 11:00 – 18:00
• Sunday: Closed

Please note: we will be closed for the Bank Holiday on Monday 29th August and for the annual UCL Library Services Conference on Thursday 21st July.

Loan statuses
The loan statuses of books stay the same throughout the summer vacation and all books remain subject to recall. If you are planning to be away from the university studying or going on excavations, please make arrangements to continue to renew your books and return them if they are recalled from you. Fines will still be payable on all books that are late back.

References, citations and avoiding plagiarism

By Jes Cooban, on 1 June 2016

The two main standard systems for citing sources correctly are the Harvard or author/date system and the Vancouver or footnotes/endnotes system, otherwise known as the numeric system.For more details see our handy guide

New loan limits for borrowing books at UCL Libraries

By Jes Cooban, on 20 April 2016

AncientlibraryalexAs part of the UCL-IOE merger, last year UCL Library Services carried out a benchmarking exercise investigating loan limits at UCL, Institute of Education and other UK universities. The outcome of this resulted in recommendations to increase our student limits.

From the week beginning Monday 18th April 2016, the new loan limits for students will be:

Undergraduates: 15 books (was previously 10 books)

Taught postgraduates: 15 books (was previously 10 books)

Research postgraduates: 25 books (was previously 20 books)

Please note that:

  1. The number of issue desk loan items that can be borrowed at any one time has not changed – this remains at 3 books/teaching collections to ensure fair access to our most pressured resources.
  2. Postgraduate and Research Postgraduate students will also still benefit from an extra 5 loans during the summer vacation.

Did you know you can access past examination papers online? You can search in two ways: use either your module code (e.g. ANTH1002) or the module title, OR use the A-Z list of departments to find your department. Papers are then arranged by level of study and year set.
