Subject LibGuides

The Subject LibGuides have been updated to ensure that all the links are working and all the books listed are their most recent edition, meaning they are better than ever! Each LibGuide has been tailored to a specific subject, meaning that the information is specialised to what you are looking for. This is where you can be directed to and book a meeting with your subject librarian, find out about which books you should read, referencing help, and much more! If you are struggling with referencing, assignments, or your dissertation, this is the place to go. The LibGuides are very easy to use, with clear signposting and information layout.

Finding your way around the Hugh Owen Library


Introducing the Library Floor Map

We have launched a new map and library guide to help you navigate the Hugh Owen Library and locate your books and other resources on the shelves.

Browse the map online at to find out what’s where, get more information about library resources and spaces and familiarise yourself with the layout – never get lost again!

The Library Floor Map is integrated with Primo, the library catalogue. When you’re viewing your item in Primo, click the Library Floormap link to open the map and the shelves where your item is located will be highlighted.

We are interested in your feedback

The Library FloorMap is a new resource, and we need your feedback to let us know how we could make it as helpful as possible for our users. Let us know here or by emailing

I distinctly remember the pride I felt when I was given my first junior library card, several decades later and libraries are still a pivotal part of my life. Being able to work in the very library that helped me graduate is still a ‘pinch-me’ moment! Outside of reading I also enjoy gardening, running and knitting.
