Freely accessible library holdings

The freely accessible library collection is a collection of books and journals located directly in the study. Users may use all documents from this collection on-site with a valid membership and visitors with a valid one-day pass, independently of the staff of the LASCR and without making a loan request. Users with off-site membership can loan selected documents from the freely accessible book collection, which are labelled on the spine by a white mark with black lettering. All loans must be put through a self-check machine located next to the information desk near the exit.
