Welcome to the Social and Political Sciences Library

The SPS Library hosts material for the Sociology and POLIS departments. We do also hold some developmental psychology material, however the majority is held in the Psychology Library on Downing Site. For Archaeology and Anthropology, please visit the Haddon Library on Downing Site.

  • The SPS Library will be receiving a new coat of paint and undergoing some general improvements next week (5th- 9th August).  We will endeavour to stay open as usual (09:30-17:00, doors close at 16:45),  however if it becomes too noisy and disruptive we may have to close at short notice. Keep an eye on our social media for updates.
