Collections and resources
The library holds core texts and also 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 ten sets of half skeletons, two iPads and several anatomical models which are all loanable.
There is also a life size vertical skeleton for use in the Library affectionately known as Ernest. We have a small anatomy DVD collection and sell basic stationery products.
There are two MFDs (one colour and one black and white), and 12 quick-use PCs.
The library is for quiet working with a separate silent study area (Except during the examination period when the whole library is for silent study only).
Bottled water and covered drinks may be consumed in the library.
