The National Police Library is moving… and improving.
The National Police Library is relocating to the College of Policing's Ryton-on-Dunsmore site. We closed the current site, at Sunningdale Berkshire on 14 October and the new library will open its doors in January 2017 (exact date to be confirmed).
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.
New training area – a new training area located within the Library can be booked by those wishing to host sessions.
eResource training – regular Library training on
eResources will take place in the training area within the new premises.
Increased research support – two Research Librarians will join the team in 2017, 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.
Some library services will be affected during the relocation – please refer to the table below.
(last book requests 14 October )
