Library and Digital Support

The Charles Seale-Hayne Library is situated at the heart of the City Centre Campus next to the Students' Union.

The Library provides access to approximately 350,000 print books, 498,000 e-books, 14,000 current journal subscriptions, and a variety of study facilities. In one central location there are the resources you need carry out research (books, journals, internet), to present your work (computers, photocopiers, loan equipment, shop) and experienced, friendly staff to help you.

Members of the public, doing personal research, may use the library free of charge for reference purposes. There are Associate Membership options for those who wish to apply for borrowing rights or reference use of the library.
