The Digital Library app, powered by MyLOFT, enables instant access to all our digital resources in one place - on any device and with a single log-on.

The British Council Digital Library works with Chrome or Microsoft Edge and when you download the MyLoft application you will need to install the MyLoft extension.

Setting up your Digital Library account and logging in to the app

  • Once your membership is activated, you will receive an email titled ‘Welcome to the British Council Digital Library’
  • Click ‘Set Password’ in the email and choose a password for your Digital Library account. 
  • Launch the web app and select British Council as your institution. Then click ‘Sign into the British Council Digital Library’
  • On the next screen, select Italy from the country dropdown and log in with your email address and the password you just created.
  • When you log in for the first time, follow the prompt to install the MyLOFT browser extension.
