Science Library

Science Library
The Science Library is situated on the first floor of Science School and has over 5000 books covering all aspects of science but with the main focus on Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Medicine and Engineering. It takes 18 magazines of a scientific and general nature and two daily newspapers. Books may be borrowed for up to three weeks at a time and may be taken out for the holidays. Personal subscriptions to New Scientist magazine (at a reduced rate) can be arranged by the Science Librarian.

As well as being a refuge for people requiring a quiet place to read, study or use a computer, the Science Library is also sometimes used for teaching small groups. It is the home of the Natural History Society (NHS) book collection.

The main School library (Moberly Library) has a smaller selection of books on more general scientific topics and acts as a complement to this library's more detailed material.
