British Library Online Account

A view of the King's Library

You need a British Library Online Account to use many of our services. You open an account by registering your details with us.

What services require an online account?

Can I edit my account?

You can edit your account if you need to change your password or edit your details. My Account also has 'forgotten username' and 'forgotten password' help.

What if I want to use more than one of your services?

If, in the future, you require other Library services you won't need to register from scratch; you can change your account options to include the new service(s).
