Q. How do I register with the library as a new member of staff?

Answer

King's Staff self-service registration

Please note staff self-service registration for a Library account is only possible for staff on the King’s payroll.

  2. You already have a Library account. Please go to any of the King’s Libraries with your King’s ID card and ask staff to check
  3. You fall into one of the categories that cannot self register – students, NHS, honorary or visiting staff
