Filming and photography in the libraries

We’re often contacted by students who wish to film, take photographs or hold a performances in the Libraries.

We’ll always try to accommodate you if it’s possible. However, our purpose is to provide an environment conducive to study and it is our duty to ensure the safety of all Library users. It’s therefore important that:

  • The photographs/film does not include pictures of other Library users without their written permission;
  • The photography/filming/performance does not disturb other Library users;
  • Access to books and other Library equipment is not unduly restricted;
  • There is no large-scale moving of furniture or stock;
  • The photography/filming/performance is done in a safe manner and an appropriate risk assessment for the activity is submitted in advance to the Library;
  • The photography/filming/performance is done during Library opening hours only.

What do we need?

We require two completed forms: a permissions form and a risk assessment. You’ll need to email them to

We’ll need to know:

  • Dates of filming/photography;
  • The nature of the activities planned;
  • Any risks involved;
  • How you plan on mitigating these risks;
  • The names of those undertaking the activities.

What next?

A member of Library staff will make a decision on whether to give permission and let you know by email.

You cannot proceed without permission.
