About the library

Bangor University Library holds an extensive range of print and electronic resources. We also have one of the largest university-based archives in the UK with our internationally recognised Archives and Special Collections department.

The service is housed over four libraries:

  • Main Library - holds collections for Arts, Languages, Humanities, Social Sciences, Music, Law, the Welsh Library and is the location of the Archives and Special Collections department.
  • Deiniol Library - holds collections for Sciences, Psychology and Healthcare Sciences. Also kept here is a large collection of Ordnance, Soil and Geological Survey maps.
  • Normal Library - holds materials related to Education, Sport, Health and Exercise Sciences and collections of children's books.
  • Wrexham Library - holds materials on Nursing, Midwifery, Radiography and Healthcare Sciences.

The local library catalogue is available online.

Bangor University Archives also contributes to the Archives Hub. To browse descriptions of their archive materials, visit their Archives Hub information page.
