Library, London Business School


Our invaluable resource for business information

Faculty, students, staff, alumni and sponsors can access authoritative, up-to-date information in our Library.

Visit the Library to browse our books, journals, annual reports, market studies and reference titles. Or use it to borrow books, read today's newspapers or just as a quiet place to study.

Members of our academic community with access to Portal, the School's extranet, can also use our electronic library of over 90 databases.

Using the Taunton Centre

The Taunton Centre is open to London Business School staff, students, faculty and alumni 24 hours a day. It houses the Library, Fitness Centre and Alumni Centre as well as a catering space. 
There are group work and individual study spaces throughout the building. The group "pods" on Floors 2 and 3 are intended for group study and whilst individuals may use them if empty, they should be willing to vacate the space if required by a group.

As the Taunton Centre is primarily a work and study space, children may not be brought into the building. The only exception to this is on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays when children may use the swimming pool between the hours of 11h00 an 16h00 if accompanied by a fitness centre member. Please note a ratio of one adult to two children is required.
