West Smithfield Library Gallery 

West Smithfield Library is our library at Barts Hospital, located in the Library and Museum Block adjacent to the Robin Brook Centre.  This lovely Victorian library, opened in 1872, is open to all Queen Mary staff and students.

The gallery level of the West Smithfield Library re-opened after several months of restricted access.  A section of the gallery level was closed due to concerns over the height and stability of the gallery hand rail.  After a health & safety risk assessment, and a review of the current condition of the hand rail, the go ahead was given to re-open the gallery level fully.  When using the gallery, please be aware that you should not sit on, or lean over the hand rail as it is very low by modern standards.

24/7 Basement Reading Room / Robin Brook Centre
The basement PC area at West Smithfield Library is open 24/7 to QM card users only. Please also note that there are still PC facilities available in the Robin Brook Centre.  

The area is suitable for group study and use of IT facilities.  You will need your Queen Mary ID card for access.

West Smithfield Gallery has fully re-opened for study
