The Brynmor Jones Library is now open to members of the public. Anyone can come and use the space on the ground floor including our art gallery and cafe.
There are also opportunities to explore our collections by using our day pass facility. A day pass provides full access to our physical collections with the option to use your own devices and connect to our high speed guest Wi-Fi network. Unfortunately you are not able to access our computers or printing facilities. Day passes allow a single visit to consult our holdings and cannot be used to gain ongoing acess to the libary.
You will need to show a piece of photo I.D. on your visit. Day Visitors under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You are free to use the Library on the day you have booked between 09.00-19.45 weekdays and 09.00-17.15 on weekends.
Please note. Day visitors are unable to book our group learning rooms and we do not offer Day Visitor access during University exam periods or through the Christmas period.
To book, select the date you'd like to visit and fill in the form. You will also be asked to confirm that you will abide by the Library regulations.
