    Hey, I'm just in the process of compiling revision notes for my A-levels and they could really do with being supplemented with some more academic texts on the subject rather than the usual basic and simplified york notes or cgp revision guides. I've checked with my local library and they have a few of the books that I'm after, but does anyone know of any decent libraries in London which have a good range of relatively academic texts? Would be great if I could borrow these books without being a member too, or if it would be possible to check online first that they actually have the books that I'm looking for?

    Thanks in advance, would be really appreciated.

    It depends what you mean by 'academic' texts. You could always try and go as a member of the public to a University Library. That said I suspect you would find it a better place to study as opposed to finding the texts you require.

    Also, there's The London Library which can be found here. It's worth bearing in mind that I'm not from London though.

    I hope this helps.
