About the library

Library and Learning Resources has four libraries: Curzon, Mary Seacole, School of Art and School of Jewellery. Each of these contains a wealth of printed material to support the course taught at their respective campus. A variety of study space is available.

  • Curzon Library is our biggest library, with two floors of books, journals and AV resources supporting the faculties of Business, Law and Social Sciences, Arts, Design and Media (including the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire), and Computing, Engineering and the Built Environment.
  • The Mary Seacole Library is a large library supporting the Health, Education and Life Sciences faculty, with a vast collection of books, journals, and teaching materials, as well as specialist subject support.
  • The School of Art Library based at the historic Margaret Street campus, supports the fine art courses taught at the Birmingham School of Art.
  • The School of Jewellery Library is based at 10 St Paul's Square in Birmingham's famous Jewellery Quarter. The library supports jewellery, silversmithing and horology courses.

The local library catalogue is available online.
