Services and support

Our libraries are located across the Cathays and Heath Park campuses, and provide a wealth of physical and online resources for students, staff, researchers and visitors.

NHS staff, Cardiff University alumni, schools and the local community are able to visit and use our services.

We are also members of the Society of College, National and University Libraries (SCONUL) reciprocal borrowing scheme and we welcome students, staff and researchers from other higher education institutions.

You can also access study skills support through the Information Literacy Resource Bank.
