Lifts and Access

Outdoor lift at entrance of The Wiener Library

In 2011 the Library moved to new premises in a historic location in Russell Square. There is a disabled lift outside of the building, and once inside the building, all floors are accessible via the indoor lift.

In the case of an emergency evacuation of the building, evacuation chairs are available. Visitors with mobility impairments or conditions which preclude them from using evacuation chairs are advised to inform the Library prior to their visit.

For visitors that are unable to attend our lectures due to access issues, we are happy to provide you with recordings of most of our lectures free of charge. If you are interested in this service, please contact the Learning Team at

We encourage visitors to contact us in advance if they are concerned about access. For those that are unable to access the building, the Library will provide a document delivery service in an accessible Reading Room nearby at Birkbeck, University of London.


Accessible Toilet

An accessible toilet is available in the basement and can be reached via the lift.

Induction Loops

For visitors with hearing impairment, an induction loop in the exhibition area and the Wolfson Reading Room is compatible with T-coil equipped hearing aids.

Guide and Assistance Dogs

We welcome Guide and Assistance dogs in the exhibition area and the Wolfson Reading Room.

Further information on disabled access and evacuation procedures at the Library is available below. If you have any further queries regarding access, or would like to use our document delivery service, please contact the Library.
