All visitors who wish to access original material at London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) will require a History Card.

You can register online or when you arrive at LMA. In order to complete your registration at LMA you will require an acceptable form of identification.

You will not need a History Card to look at copies of documents in the Information Area, or to access online or microfiche/film resources. However, as the History Card also works as a printer credit card, if you wish to use the full set of microfilm printers or print from the computer terminals you will need to register.

Register for a History Card
Please note: History cards expire three years after the date of issue, at which point, you will need to be issued with another card. You will need to be able to provide the same identification and proof of address. History card renewals are free.
