New Click, Collect & Return Service

From Monday 27th July 2020, IALS Library will operate a Click, Collect & Return service. This will allow members to borrow the library’s physical books for study at home whilst the IALS Library reading rooms remain closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The new service will operate from the Ground Floor of the IALS building at 17 Russell Square WC1B 5DR. It will be available for 2 hours from 12.00 noon to 2.00pm, Monday to Wednesday each week. You will be required to wear a face covering and follow health and safety guidance and social distancing when collecting and returning your books onsite. The health and safety of our members and staff is our top priority. If you have any difficulty going up the stairs to the front door, please do let us know beforehand by emailing ials@sas.ac.uk so we can facilitate your access.

This is a book collection and book return service ONLY. Find out more about how it works
