University of Lincoln Libraries

Your Library

The Great Central Warehouse Library is home to 260,000 journals and 750,000 print and electronic books, as well as databases and specialist collections. Situated on the Brayford Pool campus, and open 24/7 at peak times, it is a central point for students across the university to work both individually and collaboratively. The Library is staffed by an experienced team who are on hand to offer support for learning development through drop-ins, workshops, and individual appointments. 


Academic Subject Librarians

Each of our Colleges has Academic Subject Librarians on hand to support you with finding and using information, referencing, and study skills. Students have the choice of booking one-to-one appointments or attending one of the regularly run drop-in sessions.

Library Resources

The library, and many of its resources, are also available for use from external researchers and schools up to five times per academic year.

If you want a change of scenery, more specialist resources, or a space close to your lectures, then there are a range of other great study spaces for you to work in across campus.
