Accessing UCL and IOE libraries for UCL and IOE students

Francine CWood2 January 2015

IoE Library

The exciting news that the Institute of Education (IOE) became part of UCL in December, means that UCL and IOE students may use library services of both institutions.

To visit IOE’s Newsam Library and Archives

UCL students will need to present their UCL ID card at IOE Library and register. As announced in our November news bulletin, electronic resources previously provided by IOE are now available through our library catalogue and search tool, Explore.

To visit UCL Libraries

IOE students will first need to collect their UCL ID card.  The card has a barcode on the back that is connected to a UCL Library account. See information and FAQs for IOE students. Students will also need  a UCL computer username and password to access electronic resources including online journals and databases.  (Search Explore for the resource required and click the “view online” or SFX links where available.  For access to material behind subscription, enter your UCL username and password when prompted.) Please contact the UCL ISD helpdesk with queries about UCL userids.  New UCL library members may find our  Getting Started, Subject Guides and Training pages useful.

Please don’t hesitate to email library@ucl.ac.uk with any library related queries.

I hope that everyone finds this change beneficial and I’m looking forward to getting to know IOE library and colleagues myself!
