Collection Development Policies

Study resources

The Drill Hall Library holds a vast range of physical and electronic resources to help with your studies. Some of these can be found on the shelves and others are available electronically through the internet.

There are around 130,000 books in our collection. Most of these are on the shelves in the Quiet and Silent Zones and are in numerical order according to the number on the spine of the book (shelfmark). The numbers are taken from the Dewey Decimal system, which is used by many libraries. If you haven't used a library before these numbers can be confusing - try using our Guide to the Dewey Decimal System.

As well as the main collection, there are some special collections of books, including the Lifestyle Collection, all in the Group Zone. The Lifestyle Collection includes books on health and wellbeing (eg exercise, diet and stress management) and the local area as well as a collection of popular fiction. These books are available to all library users.

We also have DVDs (near the fiction), maps (between the Quiet and Silent Zones - see the map collection guide for more information) and music CDs (on racks in the Quiet Zone) available.
