University of Salford Library

About the library

We have two library sites and several library spaces on Main Campus and at MediaCityUK.

Our main library, Clifford Whitworth, has recently been fully refurbished, offering bright, fresh, technology enabled study areas with a variety of attractive work spaces which allow our students the freedom to learn in ways that feel natural and comfortable.

We provide access to a wide range of resources for research and learning. Our cutting edge resource discovery tool, Library Search, allows access to all our academic resources from a single interface, including more than 348,000 books, 33,000 e-journals and 592,000 e-books and several special collections and archives.

The local library catalogue is available online.

University of Salford Archives and Special Collections also contribute to the Archives Hub. To browse descriptions of their archive materials, visit their Archives Hub information page.
