1.When you visit the LHS Library, take the lift to the 3rd floor of the Central Library – the LHS Library is within the Search Room.
2. Deposit any bags, coats etc in one of the lockers outside the Search Room – there's a £1 coin-returnable system in place.
3. Show your LHS Membership / Programme card to a member of staff on duty who will allow you access to the Search Room. Unlike members of the public, LHS members do NOT have to make a prior appointment to access the Search Room.
4. If you wish to borrow book(s) whilst you are at the Library, please complete the loans form which will be found in the ' Returned Books' box on the shelf. The loan period is for 30days. Please notify the Librarian by email (email@example.com) what book(s) you have borrowed.
5. At the end of the loan period, please return the book(s) to the LHS library. If you wish to renew them for a further 30 days , contact the Librarian by email for authorisation.
N.B. As part and parcel of the above arrangements, LHS members using the Search Room have access to the photocopier, which also incorporates a scanner if you need to copy anything from a book. Normal photocopying charges and copyright legislation would apply. In addition, you have the option of using, free of charge, the dedicated overhead scanner and downloading the scans onto your own USB memory stick. LHS members also have access to the public computers in the Search Room. You will need a Liverpool Libraries membership card to do this. This then gives you free access to various resources.
There are also a number of microfilm machines in the Search Room which you can access, again free of charge – staff would bring the reels to you in the Search Room.
