Important information for alumni and visitors
The Courtauld Institute of Art is undertaking a major redevelopment project to transform its home at Somerset House so that it is accessible to all and suitable for the 21st century. The project is called Courtauld Connects and while construction work is underway, the majority of the Book Library’s collections will temporarily move to a purpose-built educational facility near King’s Cross called Vernon Square.
The new Library at Vernon Square is now open. We look forward to welcoming you there!
The Library at Somerset House remains closed to all users until early February. The journals, sales catalogues and CABs collections are inaccessible until such time.
Current students and staff please see the VLE for full information about opening times and service availability.
