Downtime for study room & minibus bookings

Posted on 22 March 2017

We’re upgrading our LibCal booking system on Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 March.

LibCal is the system that you use to book study rooms and seats on the British Library minibus.

While we're upgrading the system, you won't be able to make bookings for study rooms - they'll be available on a first come, first served basis.

The British Library minibus isn't due on these days. If you need to make a minibus booking while LibCal is unavailable please ring us on (01904 32) 3838 or email

Any study room or minibus bookings that you’ve already made for dates on or after Wednesday 29 March will still be there when the upgrade completes. You may notice that the look and feel of the system changes, but the way it works will remain the same.
