As a foreigner do I need an invitation to visit the library or is there public access?

The Reading Rooms in The Royal Library are open to students, researchers and the general public. A letter of invitation is not necessary.

You can register as a Reading Room user ahead of time to have materials delivered to the Research Reading Room for perusal (please allow two days for delivery):

Register as user > Other type of user > Private user > No > fill out the form.
