Reopening the British Library and Digitisation Services
From 1 September we're reopening more of our public spaces. You'll be able to visit our galleries, Members' Room and public spaces once more by pre-booking tickets online. We've been working really hard to ensure you can visit the Library safely. Find out more about how and what we're reopening.
Digitisation Services are also beginning a phased return to our buildings and we are working on plans to gradually resume limited services as soon as we are able to. Currently we are unable to access BL collections or do any digitisation work.
