Our new app from OverDrive for borrowing recreational audiobooks and e-books

Download Libby to borrow recreational and careers e-books and audiobooks from the library. Browse our curated lists or search the collection to find your next read.
For e-books on other platforms, please search the library catalogue.

Libby will ask if you have a library card. Click yes, then search for London Business School and sign in with your LBS ID
See here for a video demonstration.

You can borrow up to 3 titles at a time for 21 days. If an item is not required by another user, you can renew it.

  • If Libby doesn't have the title you want, you can search the whole library catalogue. Here you will find all our print and e-books with details of how to access them.
  • If we don't have it, you can make a book purchase request. Please write your preferred format in the notes field (e.g. print, Libby e-book/audiobook).
  • You can also place a ‘Notify me’ tag in Libby, to receive a notification if a title becomes available in the future.
