About the Library Service

We have three libraries:

  • Kings Norton Library, designed by Sir Norman Foster and located in the heart of the Cranfield campus. It is open to all Cranfield University staff and students. You can also visit if you are a member of the SCONUL Access Scheme or a member of the public.
  • Management Information and Resource Centre (MIRC), on the first floor of the School of Management (Building 111) on the Cranfield campus. It is open to all Cranfield University staff and students.  
  • Barrington Library, supporting Cranfield Defence and Security courses based at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom in Shrivenham. It is open to all Shrivenham site staff and students but for security reasons, any other visits are by appointment only.

We also run Bouverie House Library for courses at MK:U.
