Welcome to the Library

Welcome to Goldsmiths!

The Library is at the heart of Goldsmiths and over the course of your studies you will be spending a lot of time here! To get you started we are providing a series of welcome events that will help you to navigate the building, discover the varied resources we offer and find out how and where you can find assistance.


Come along to one of the Library tours so you can find your way around the building. We will show you the reading rooms; student IT zones; printing and photocopying areas; how to find and borrow books and where the service points are.

Tours run every 30 minutes from 10.00-16.30 Monday to Friday during Welcome Week. Meet at the Library tour bus top in the Library Foyer. Tours continue at 10.00, 12.00 and 14.00 during 29th September- 3rd October.


Inductions will be taking place during Welcome Week so that you can meet your subject librarian and learn more about the library. Your subject librarian will usually be your main contact in the library. Your department may have arranged a library induction – please check your timetable to see whether they have. Otherwise, your subject librarian may attend your departmental induction instead. Your subject librarian will talk about the library’s extensive collections of resources and explain how he/she can support your studies.


Library staff will be available in the College Green Marquee on Monday and Tuesday during Welcome Week. Stop by and say hello to the Library staff between 11.00 and 14.30 to ask us any questions you have about the Library.


Throughout Welcome Week we will be blogging about the 9 essential things you need to know about using the Library.

If you have any questions please contact us by emailing library@gold.ac.uk
