Our collections

The Library’s book collections extend to some 600,000 volumes. There are subscriptions to more than 17,000 e-journals.There is increasing provision of electronic resources: e-journals, databases and e-books, all of which are accessible remotely 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Much of the material you're likely to need is stored in the two libraries on campus according to the following arrangement by subject:

Less frequently used material (including PhD theses, books, journals etc) from all subject areas is stored in the Depository, a closed access store. This means that you need to request items in the Depository if you want to use them and they will be made available at Founder's Library for you to pick up.
