You can renew your Reader Pass before your current Pass expires. Your new Pass will be valid from the day you renew.
If you have lost your expired pass we can still renew it; and you should apply in person to Reader Registration.
If your pass has expired but you need to pre-order material in advance of your next visit, please contact Reader Services.
To renew a Reader Pass, come to Reader Registration on the Upper Ground Floor at St Pancras:
- If you have a three year Reader Pass you can renew up to six months before the expiry date and any time after expiry
- If you have a one year Pass you can renew up to one month before the expiry date and any time after expiry
- If you have a monthly Pass you can renew up to one week before the expiry date and any time after expiry.
You will need to complete a PC-based application form. You may need to provide evidence that you need ongoing access.
You must provide appropriate identification and proof of address; we cannot issue a Reader Pass without this.
