Library and information services

The College has an extensive collection of optical books, journals, research papers and pamphlets – available in printed format and online. These are available free of charge to College members.

Our helpful library and information services team is here to help you find the information you need. We also have a number of online services available to members.

There are more than 100 titles in our collection of national and international optical journals.

Our collection of ebooks can be read online, or downloaded to read off line. All you need is an OpenAthens password, which can be requested from the library.

Here are the main online databases that can support optometric research.
