School and college visits to the University Library

We welcome local schools and colleges to visit the Library, for tours and for librarian-led workshops, where you can develop skills and learn more about the unique and special collections of the University Library. Please speak to your school about arranging a visit. They can contact us at:

We have an exciting online resource to support students in years 12 and 13. The Pre-entry Information and Digital Literacy offer is a suite of online tutorials which enable you to develop all the information skills you need to succeed in independent research projects during sixth form and university.

Some students may also want to make use of library content, particularly to support student led research projects, such as the EPQ. You are welcome to apply to visit the Library as a day visitor for this purpose.  Please ask your teacher / School Librarian to complete this form.
