List Upcoming Event


The bfi National Library's collection is accessible to all Pass holders and annual members. This collection is made accessible for reference only. While we aim to make using the Reading Room as straightforward as possible the nature of the collection means that we do not operate as either a public or University library.

Our collections can be consulted in our Reading Room, where you can also access our BID Database. There is a separate study room for consulting the special collections of unpublished materials. We also offer Information Services for written and telephone enquiries and research.

Users need to buy daily, weekly or annual passes for the Reading Room, and annual passes for the Special Collections room. A charge is made for many of our information services.
