Collections and resources
The Stopford Library serves the Faculty of Medical and Human Sciences.
The library holds core texts and other recommended reading for first and second year students in the schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Pharmacy. We also hold recommended reading for students in the Faculty of Life Sciences.
We have 10 boxes of half skeletons: 4 for reference use only and 6 to be borrowed using High Demand loan periods. Before 2pm the skeletons are loaned for 3 hours and after 2pm they are loaned until 10.30am the next morning.
There is also a life size vertical skeleton for use in the library.
We also have a small anatomy DVD collection.
There are 2 photocopiers (1 colour and 1 black and white), a pull and print device, 10 quick use PCs and 2 dedicated library catalogue PCs.
The library is for quiet working (silent during the examination period).
Bottled water and covered drinks may be consumed in the library but no food is allowed.
