The library is extensive and widely-used and presently holds over 40,000 volumes. About 1000 volumes are added each year as a result of donations and the purchase of new books. All of the basic books are held for reference use in the library, and many of the additional reading books for each module are available for short term loan while the module is running. Subscriptions are held for 50 current journals, which may be read in the library. One article from any one issue may be photocopied. Articles can also be supplied from journals held in other libraries. Library staff can help you to research details.
