Using other libraries

You can access many University Libraries and National Libraries to use their archives. However, you may need to arrange this in advance so you should contact the Library well ahead of visting to find out what information they require. You will normally need your University of St Andrews student card but you may also be asked to complete a membership form.

LSE Library

The Library at the London School of Economics and Political Science has major collections of publications from governments and intergovernmental organisations. Publications collected are those which contain social or economic date and illustrate the process of government. Special deposit agreements have resulted in an extensive collection of US Federal Government Publications since 1903, a comprehensive collection of UN publications and publications from the European Community since 1964.

If you wish to visit the library please fill out the self-registration form prior to your visit.
