Located on the 6th floor of OLD, this is a comfortably furnished common room and library for all members of the School. It has a pleasant ambience and is a haven of retreat for many (although it is not intended for serious study by students). The Shaw Library is regularly used for School functions.
The stock can be borrowed by LSE staff and students: up to four items may be loaned for up to three weeks. Newspapers and serials are available for reading in the Library. It is also the venue of the School's long standing free lunchtime recitals and concerts series. Music is an important part of LSE life. The School has its own orchestra and choir: both are conducted by professional musicians, rehearse weekly and give public performances at the end of the Michaelmas and Lent terms.
