Our collections

The library collection covers all areas of the curriculum and strives to contain all the key texts needed to complete your study. If there’s a book or multi-media item you need and we haven’t got it, we’ll try and get it for you. To request an item for the library & LRC Please e mail to the Library & Learning Resource Centre Coordinator at

Art and Design collection

The extensive collection of Arts books covers historic and contemporary artistic practice in all fields. Whether you’re looking to the past for inspiration or searching for information on the latest creative techniques we have materials for you.

Historic Collections project

As well as the contemporary collection the Library & LRC houses the historic collection of books. These books go back to the college’s founding in 1854 and offer a rare insight into the history of the college and its founders as well as liberal arts education in general. A project is underway to catalogue these items and make them available for researchers.
