Our libraries at Canterbury, Medway and the Salomons Institute of Applied Psychology (Tunbridge Wells) contain study spaces and facilities to suit a variety of working styles, as well as access to books and printed journals.

You can access online journals and e-books through LibrarySearch which acts as a gateway to online resources as well as being the library catalogue.

We’re here to help you navigate collections, identify the information you need and develop the skills to succeed in your studies.

We also provide an academic campus bookshop which stocks thousands of book titles and can obtain any title currently in print often for next day delivery. The Bookshop supports many events from individual book launches to book festivals throughout the year.
