These pages are for current London Business School students, staff and faculty. Alumni can access the library resources available to them through the LBS Hub.


Use of the Library e-resources

The  Library licences access to over 5,000 ebooks, 34,000 ejournals and 70 datasets for the use of current students, faculty and staff of the School. Infringement of our licence terms puts our digital library at risk and can lead to the termination of access to a resource for all LBS users. You, as an authorised user, are responsible for ensuring that your use of the resources complies with the licence terms and conditions. Our licences allow you to make use of these resources personally and for educational purposes only. You must not:

  • share your login details with others, whether co-authors or other students
  • Use any automated system to extract data (such as spiders, bots, offline readers etc.)
  • pass on or share downloaded materials with unauthorised users in any format
  • use the resources for any commercial purpose, including internships and consulting activities

These broad principles apply to all resources though the terms of each licence do vary. If you have any questions about the licensing of a specific electronic resource, please contact the library’s Electronic Resources Manager, at

As a member of the School, you have access to a rich portfolio of business information – available to you 24/7 wherever you are studying. Please help us to keep it that way.
