Seating and desks
The library has a small informal seating space, with tables and chairs for casual study and meetings. There are also four desks with plugs for laptops and four desks with computers.
All space is available on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved or held for you in your absence.
Free wi-fi access is available in Chatham House – see signs around the library, or ask a member of library staff for details.
There are four computers available for use by members, providing access to the library catalogue, the eLibrary, the web and Microsoft Office. Those wanting to use the computers should ensure that they can access and save any documents they need remotely.
Memory sticks are not permitted for security reasons.
If all the computers are taken, and you would like to search the library catalogue or eLibrary, please speak to a member of staff.
Printing and copying
Printing can be done from the library computers at a cost of 10p per sheet. There is a coin operated photocopier which costs 10p per sheet and prints A4 or A3.
There is a coffee machine in the library – tea and coffee can be consumed in the library, but please do not bring food in with you.
