LSE Library has begun a major project to reconfigure our use of space and enable us to support the LSE community better. This project has the following aims:

  • To create new study spaces to meet student demand and improve the quality and range of study spaces.
  • To enable growth in key areas of our outstanding social science collection, by moving lower use material to closed access and offsite storage, addressing the fact that we are at full capacity with our physical collections.

Work on stock moves began on Monday 4th January 2016 and will continue until September. There should be minimal disruption to library users and work will be suspended during the exam period.

Access to material will be maintained and Library staff will be on hand to help you throughout the project. If you do require access to material held off-site it can be retrieved within 24 hours.

We will keep you up to date throughout the project but if you have questions or would like further information please contact There is further detailed information about the stock being moved and key dates throughout the project on the Library Space Development webpage:
