University of Birmingham Library

We are very pleased to announce that after 5 years’ worth of work, the new library at the University of Birmingham opened today. The concepts for the project were sketched out back in 2011. The opening is being marked with a special exhibition, open to the public, showcasing works from the University’s collections which have pushed the boundaries of Western knowledge over the last 500 years.

The £60m state of the art facility, for students, staff and researchers will act as a hub to the University with some facilities being opened to the public. Featuring some 62 kilometres of shelving, including 12 kilometres of open access bookshelves, the library will provide a home for thousands of books and publications whilst delivering an inspirational learning spaces embracing new and emerging technologies.
