Our library is hosted for us at Manchester Metropolitan UniversityĎs premises in Shrewsbury.
Most of our books and journals come from donations, and we can guarantee to take responsible care of anything that we receive. Duplicates and surplus material is found a good home at Field Centres around the country. We also digitize our own publications and books that are out of copyright, copies of which are held in the library.
If you are interested in donating, to the library, please contact Sarah Whild.
