The library is a vibrant and integral part of university life with more than 3 million visitors each year. We are committed to preserving, protecting and providing access to information. It is a safe and inclusive space for learning, study and the free exchange of knowledge and ideas.

Philanthropy has always been important to the development of the Library, from the establishment of the Fryer Library in 1927, to the digitisation of heritage materials and the development of innovative services today.

  • continue to develop world-class research collections

  • develop a dedicated teaching space where students, and the community, can experience interacting with rare and unique special collections
