How to get a CARN ticket

Getting a ticket is easy and free. You can get your CARN ticket from the Customer Service Desk on Level 4, in Archives and Collections.

All you need is proof of identity. This should be an official document with your full name, printed address, and signature - such as a driving licence. If you do not have a driving licence, you will need to bring two other documents, for example:

One item with your signature:

  • Passport
  • Bank card
  • Credit card

Plus one item with your printed address:

  • Bank statement
  • Utility bill (gas, electric, water or telephone)
  • Medical card
  • Council tax bill
