The University of Birmingham has excellent library services and we would encourage you to visit and get familiar with the libraries as quickly as possible. The Library has a range of services available at library service points, including book loans, and help and advice in relation to our printed and electronic collections. We cater for people who come to the library in person and also provide a one-stop-shop service for online and telephone enquiries.
The Library printed collections are kept in the Main Library and five site libraries and there is a large electronic collection of resources – books, periodicals, databases - available online. Academic support teams work closely with colleagues in Colleges to provide the information resources and services required to meet the requirements to carry out learning, teaching and research throughout the University. The Academic Skills Centre helps taught students develop their academic writing and general academic skills.
The Digital and Technology Skills Team designs and delivers a wide range of courses and technology training solutions to meet the developmental needs of postgraduate students, teaching, research and admin staff.
