Information for local schools

We are unable to accommodate any school visits during our major refurbishment. This will continue to be the case until at least Autumn 2019.

However you may find the following information useful.


The Library supports each University department by providing online links to resources, gateways and tutorials useful at that level. You can use these as a starting point for researching information on Education or individual secondary level subjects (using the equivalent Subject guide, e.g. Chemistry). Please note that whilst many resources are free for you to access, some resources, including almost all online materials, are only available to members of the University of Reading.

Useful links

Below are some suggested links to help you assist your pupils.

Resources for your school

Library membership for local teachers

If you are a local teacher you can apply to borrow from the University Library for an annual fee - for more information see Members of the public: using the Library.

Teachers at schools where our teacher training students are on placement gain half-price membership. (School pupils are not eligible.) For further information, see Teachers at mentor schools: joining the Library.
