Faculty of Arts Library 

The Faculty of Arts Library was founded in 2012 and is housed on the second floor of the Old Humanities Building on Campus.  The 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 academics.  

It currently holds a collection of 3,191 books including the priceless Ann Williams collection (1,799).  Within the Faculty of Arts 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 on-line catalogue which is the same as that used throughout the Main University and Branch Libraries. The Faculty of Arts Library is a reference collection.  

The Library also 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 power points throughout the room for library users who wish to bring their laptops with them.  Internet is also available throughout the premises.
