During exam revision time, we make extra effort to ensure there is plenty of study space available to students by repurposing other rooms around College.
The Sir William Leech Library occupies the first and second floors of our purpose-built Learning Resource Centre, which is situated next to the college chapel.
The building is open 24/7 to library members and access is normally by campus card. There are CCTV cameras and a book security system in operation.
The library is light, spacious and congenial for study, with 86 study desks as well as a group study room for up to 8 people and an excellent stock of around 27,000 books, which includes a particularly fine theology collection. About 1,000 books on a wide range of subjects are added to stock each year.
Melissa, our friendly College librarian, is available part of the day to help with any queries.
The library catalogue is fully searchable online at: http://library.dur.ac.uk
and the librarian can be contacted by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
