About the library

Brunel University London Library is situated in the Bannerman Centre, at the heart of the Brunel University campus. Housed over four floors, the main library collection includes over 300,000 print books and other materials, as well as a large collection of online resources.

Special Collections at Brunel University London houses a variety of book and archival collections dating principally from the 19th century onwards, which have mostly been collected since the 1980s. They include comprehensive collections relating to transport history (particularly railways), the history of tunneling under the English Channel, and working class autobiographies. Other themes are poetry and dialect, Shakespeare authorship and issues around equality and advocacy (including disability history and anti-apartheid campaigning).

The local library catalogue is available online.
