We are currently making way for an enhanced learning space for staff and students in the School of Dentistry. Books and journals have now been moved to the Main Library where staff, students and visitors will be able to access material.  

We have now set up a book collection service in the Dental Hospital for registered staff and students in posession of a current University ID card.  Library books can also be dropped off in the book box.
