An overview of our libraries

Many colleges at Durham University have their own libraries. Whilst the college libraries are managed independently from the University’s main library, they play an important role in supporting learning and well-being on campus. During the current lockdown period, college libraries may not be operating as usual - please check with your college.

The college libraries provide study space as well as information resources, which can be found by searching Discover. Some even offer colouring books and reading for pleasure collections! Library access and borrowing are normally limited to the members of each college. If you have any queries regarding your college library loans, please contact your college librarian in the first instance.
