The library in the John Henry Brookes Building is an inspiring place for students to study, with lots of light, airy spaces and reading rooms with fantastic views. In addition to banks of PCs, all study spaces have power sockets, and Wi-Fi is available throughout – enabling users to stay connected to the resources of the e-library as well as to the internet.
The library also offers a number of other services to help make your experience even more special.
These services include:
The library has a range of spaces designed to match your preferred working style:
There is a main Help Zone which will includes a coaching area with AV equipment and a dedicated team of librarians to ensure you receive high quality advice for all your queries. There are also roving librarians to help with queries throughout all the library’s spaces.
With group work likely to play a key role in your studies, we have created a space especially for this function. Complementing the quiet and silent spaces in the Library, the Platform will be a more informal area. It will have specially designed furniture for working together around computer screens, informal seating with views across the Forum and vending machines.
Complementing the quiet and silent spaces in the library, the Platform, sitting on top of the John Henry Brookes Lecture Theatre, provides more informal areas for groups to work in. It has specially designed furniture to make working together easier, with large screens, casual seating with views across the Forum, and vending machines to keep your group fuelled. You can plug your own laptop, or one of the Chromebooks available for loan, into the screens to bring your presentation ideas to life.
Oxford Brookes University houses a number of special collections, including the Booker Prize Archive, and the National Brewing Library.
These unique collections are based in a specialist temperature-controlled basement of the library, where they’re be accessible to all our students.
