Faculty of Arts Library

Faculty of Arts Library

Founded in 2012, the Faculty of Arts Library is housed on the second floor of the Old Humanities Building at the Msida Campus.

This Library offers a vast range of resources to the 16 departments within the Faculty of Arts. The goal of the Library is to support the academic programmes as well as the research studies conducted by both students and staff. 

The vast collection of books in the Faculty of Arts Library includes the priceless Ann Williams collection. In this Library, you can find books about Anthropology, Archaeology, Geography, History, History of Arts, International Relations, Literature (English, French, Italian, German, Maltese, and Spanish), Philosophy, Religion and Social Studies. The books are arranged according to the Library of Congress classification system. Access to the collection is provided through the Library’s online catalogue, the same as the one used for the Main University Library and its branches. The Faculty of Arts Library is a reference collection. 

The Library subscribes to a number of databases containing journal articles, reviews, book chapters and reports. The most important and frequently used databases for Faculty of Arts students are Academic Search Complete, JSTOR, Literature Online, MLA International Bibliography, Oxford English Dictionary, Project Muse, Routledge Performance Archive and Taylor and Francis Online.

There are electric power points in the room for library users who wish to use their laptops. Internet is also available.
