University Libraries

There are four libraries on campus: the Information Commons (IC), Western Bank Library, St George’s Library, and the Health Sciences Library at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital. There’s also a small library at the Northern General Hospital.

They offer a wealth of material to support learning and research at the University; over 1,300,000 printed volumes and an extensive range of high quality electronic resources. Many resources are accessible from off-campus via the Internet.

The University Library also runs a free minibus service to the British Library at Boston Spa on the first Tuesday of each month. See Current British Library Boston Spa Minibus schedule.
