Preparing for your visit to the University of Bristol Library

How to check that the book you need is available.

Before visiting, you will need to confirm the book you wish to study is available.

You will also need to confirm the location of the book. Our printed collections are housed across our library locations, but not every library is open to visitors.

If the book is within a library that is not open to the public, you can request it to be brought to the Arts and Social Sciences Library, where you will be able to review the text.
