Library facilities in the School

Most departments in the School provide a library service with a specialist subject focus to support their teaching and research. The libraries' collections comprise many thousands of printed books and journal volumes, and the libraries also provide access to the online journals, specialist subject databases and e-books that the University has purchased. Several libraries also own important special collections of rare books and other material such as archives, manuscripts and flora.

Most of the libraries welcome use by all current students and staff of the University and also external researchers upon application. Please see the websites and contact details of individual libraries below for further information.
