Disruption to technology services on Friday 14 July

Web maintenance at the British Library

We are experiencing major disruption to technology systems today, Friday 14 July.

Published date:

Following the major technology disruption this morning, our Reading Rooms are open at both St Pancras and Boston Spa as quiet study spaces, with limited technology-based services. We expect this to continue for the rest of today. We’re aiming to open Reading Rooms at St Pancras tomorrow and to offer services as normal, but please look out for more information in case of further changes.

The earlier technical issues may mean that some requests for collection items will not be available at St Pancras on Saturday 15 July. Please check your requests are available in My Requests before travelling.
