Bute Library

Our school has a specialised library situated on the second floor of the Bute Building that is a large and constantly growing resource for our students. It contains almost a million volumes and over 12,000 different journal titles accessible in digital and print formats.

The Bute Library is a part of Cardiff University's comprehensive library service, which is organised into a network of libraries all linked through a powerful computer system. This makes it simple to find books and journals as well as to reserve books and check details of borrowing with the touch of a button.

Much more than a place to borrow books, journals and DVDs, our library also offers a list of specialised services and workshops for students at every level of study including:

  • hands-on library workshops to demonstrate the most appropriate information resources
  • advice on citing references and using EndNote
  • one-on-one consultations with the School's subject librarian
  • printing and photocopying services

Our library is also designed for multi-purpose use, with private and group study areas, a comfortable lounge and multiple computer rooms. Laptops are also made available for use while at the library to accommodate flexibility in movement while you study with us.
