Middle Temple Library is open to all members of the four Inns of Court. We accept enquiries in special circumstances from non-members and researchers (by appointment only), and reserve the right to charge non-members for access. For those who are unable to access the library in person, we also offer a document delivery service. Please use the contact details on the right-hand side of this page for further information.
The Library holds approximately 250,000 volumes, covering all aspects of British, European and American law. We have an enquiry service staffed by specialist legal librarians, who are able to help with enquiries made in person, on the telephone, by fax or by email.
The full range of our collections can searched via our online catalogue or by using the search box embedded in this page:
