What: 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.

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

The long opening hours ensure that JRUL services, facilities and help are available at a time convenient to you. Details of these, and a wealth of other information about what they have to offer to University members and visitors, are available on the website.
