The OLRC has a total of 488 study spaces. This includes over 368 traditional desks (including seven individual study rooms) and 65 PCs.
The OLRC has seven individual study rooms available to book. The rooms are for single occupancy only.
To book a room you can call 0121 415 8454 between the hours of 9-4 Monday- Friday, or contact Just Ask. We aim to respond to all email enquiries within 24 hours. These rooms can be booked a week in advance for a maximum of three bookings a week, after which we use a first come, first served system. The rooms can also be booked at the library helpdesk on a first come, first served basis. Please be aware that these study rooms are not sound proof so you will need to bring headphones to listen to seminars or online calls.
There are computer clusters in each of the three halls on the first floor of the main building. You will need your ADF username and password to use these computers.
Wireless access is available throughout the library.
Photocopying and printing
There are Multifunctional Devices (MFDs) on the ground and first floors of the library. These will allow you to print, photocopy and scan to University email addresses.
Our managed print system allows you to collect your printing from any of our MFDs and to print from your own laptop or mobile device. See our main printing, photocopying and scanning page for more information.
