Welcome to What's New at Mary Seacole Library

What's New at City South Campus
  • Ex-Library books for sale in the Mary Seacole Library

For Sale image The Mary Seacole has a number of ex-library books for sale in the library foyer.  

Come along and get a bargain!

  • Move of Speech and Language Therapy, Radiography & Rehabilitation Books and Journals to City South Campus

Books and Journals to support SALT, Radiography and Rehabilitation Courses will be moved from City North to the Mary Seacole Library at City South during the week beginning 1st August. The move should be completed by August 5th and books available for loan ahead of the School moves later in August.

Books currently on loan can be returned at either Kenrick or Mary Seacole (or any Birmingham City University Library) and they will be transferred to the correct site.

Print journals for these Schools will be moved to Mary Seacole Library but please note that journals supporting Psychology will remain at Kenrick.

It will inevitably take a little time to bed such a large quantity of stock down in the Seacole Library, and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause to staff and students during the transferral period. We will be monitoring stock over the coming year to identify use, and any material inadvertently left at Kenrick will be available for inter-site loan if required and transferred where appropriate.

If you have any questions, please contact Peter Ebrey:
