Group visits to the BFI Reuben Library

We regularly welcome group visits from schools, colleges, universities, and community groups. We also provide tours for groups of library and information specialists, as well as colleagues from the wider museums, arts and moving image communities.

Applications for group study visits

We can accommodate larger groups on Mondays when the library is closed, and smaller groups of up to ten for morning sessions during the week. Please include the following information when applying for a study visit. This will help us deal with your request quickly: How many students are in the group? When would you like to visit? How will you be paying for the visit? What is the research project or topics?

Make an enquiry – we look forward to hearing from you and will respond to requests for library visits within five working days.

Day bookings

The BFI Reuben Library is available for day bookings on Mondays. These sessions run from 10.30am–5pm. All sessions begin with an introduction to the library by one of the librarians. Visitors are then able to pursue individual or group projects. These sessions allow groups to explore the collections held in an exclusive environment, with dedicated staff on hand to help, and any materials held in the closed access stack collected throughout the session. For all-day bookings, we are able to accommodate up to 40 individuals.

Should you wish to discuss your needs, book a session, or check costs please contact us.
