New WiFi Service


We’ve improved our WiFi to give you a better and faster service

Published date:

We’ve made some changes to improve our WiFi. Everyone will now use a single WiFi network called BL Public WiFi.

Accessing the new service is easy:

  • Select the BL Public WiFi option on your device
  • From the login page enter your British Library Online Account Username and Password

If you are a Registered Reader, an On Demand customer or a user of the MBS and Social Welfare portals you will already have a British Library online account.

To set up a British Library Online Account, click Register for WiFi on the login page and follow the instructions.

Please note if you registered for the previous WiFi service with different details, these will no longer work and you will need to set up a new online account which will only take a few minutes.
