The Library

The main library at LMH contains over 70,000 books, spread across three floors, and is at the heart of College life. We also have a small but interesting and varied rare books collection of around 2,000 volumes. LMH library is open to college members 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our library collections are stocked in all major areas of undergraduate study, including multiple copies of key texts. The College also has a policy of providing for the needs of graduate students where possible, and indeed for all members of LMH. The library, designed by Raymond Erith and opened by the Queen in 1961, is made up of a mixture of individual study bays and larger group tables. The final refurbishment of the library was completed in 2005 when the law library was modernised. Further details may be found at:
