The Library is at the heart of the campus and offers a wealth of resources and services to support you in your study at Brunel. In addition to our recently refurbished building which houses study space and print resources, we also offer an extensive e-Library which provides electronic access to a huge range of online material, including journal articles and e-books. With 24 hour access across the week, and a range of support available, you can use the Library at a time which is convenient for you.

The Library holds a collection of approximately 400,000 books and an increasing collection of e-resources to support your studies here. To see what books we have, try searching the library catalogue, or to see what e-resources we have, try our Library Search from the library homepage, (access to the full text will become available once you have enrolled).

Most reading lists will be made available online before you start university. This is a great opportunity to see what reading is expected of you before you start. Reading lists are arranged by module rather than by course. You can view the typical modules available for your course from the 'Course Content' tab on the relevant course page. Then you can search using the relevant module name. Reading lists are updated regularly, so please visit the site later if your modules are not available yet.
