Abstract

In the period between the two wars, Oxford and Cambridge and most of our provincial universities and colleges have either built new libraries or large additions to existing ones. But the library of Birmingham University has remainedas has the university itselfin two sections which are 2 miles apart. The main library, including the books of the Faculty of Arts, remain in the Edmund Street building of 1880 in the City Centre, and are housed in a number of classrooms. The science and commerce books are at Edgbaston, and in premises which, when built in the first decade of this century, were quite inadequate both in design and in the accommodation provided.
