The National Police Library will open in Ryton on 22 February
The National Police Library has relocated to the College of Policing's Ryton-on-Dunsmore site. There is currently no access to the hardcopy resources - the new library will open on 22 February 2017.
From the new location the library will offer many new and improved services, in addition to those already available to members which will be introduced during the first months after reopening.
Out of hours access – A new swipe-card entry system will allow College staff and students attending courses at Ryton to gain access to the library even when it is unstaffed, making it more convenient than ever.
eResource training – regular Library training on
eResources will take place in the training area within the new premises.
Increased research support – two Research Librarians have joined the team, working on developing specialist search strategies for internal and external research projects, enabling the College to build the evidence base in policing. As well as the new Ryton site, a Research Librarian will also be available at our London premises.
The National Police Library has now relocated to Ryton-on-Dunsmore.
As Ryton is secure site, the library is only open to current serving police, police staff, approved researchers and College staff.
We are located on the ground floor of the Edgbaston building. If you are visiting Ryton specifically to use the library, please contact us to provide at least 24 hours notice before your visit so we can inform the gatehouse. You will need to bring your warrant card or photo ID.
