Library & Information Services (L&IS) are at the heart of the learning, teaching and research experience for students and staff at Cardiff Metropolitan University. Their two Learning Centres at the Llandaff and Cyncoed campuses house a vast collection of physical material covering all academic disciplines and research areas of Cardiff Met. The collection is complemented by significant and continued investment in electronic resources.
The library’s special collections relate to various areas of study within the Cardiff School of Art and Design, Cardiff School of Education and Cardiff School of Sport and Health Sciences.

Copac previously included the records for Brunel University London Library’s Special Collections. However this has now been expanded to include Brunel’s complete holdings.
Brunel University London Library is situated in the Bannerman Centre, at the heart of the Brunel University campus. Housed over four floors, the main library collection includes over 300,000 print books and other materials, as well as a large collection of online resources.
Special Collections at Brunel University London houses a variety of book and archival collections dating principally from the 19th century onwards, which have mostly been collected since the 1980s. They include comprehensive collections relating to transport history (particularly railways), the history of tunneling under the English Channel, and working class autobiographies. Other themes are poetry and dialect, Shakespeare authorship and issues around equality and advocacy (including disability history and anti-apartheid campaigning).
