John Rylands University Library

With more than 4 million printed books and manuscripts, over 41,000 electronic journals and 500,000 electronic books, as well as several hundred databases, the John Rylands University Library (JRUL) is one of the best-resourced academic libraries in the country.

Our primary aim is to support students and staff of The University of Manchester in all areas of their study. But we are also fully committed to widening participation, and access to many of our services is provided for individual researchers, schools and the local community.
