Royal Holloway students and staff can register online to use Senate House Library e-resources or visit them in person to use their print collections.

You can become a member and apply  for a library card free of charge. Just visit Senate House Library and take along your Royal Holloway RCS (College) card (showing a valid expiry date). This grants you access to the print and electronic resources of the Senate House Library.

You can also register online for access to their electronic resources.  We have two guides which will show you how to gain access to Senate House's e-resources.
