A new year and a new SUNCAT Contributing Library – that of Canterbury Christ Church University! We invited Ian Simpson, Library Collection Development Manager, to write a few words about the library and its collections.

____________________________________________

Canterbury Christ Church University is a modern, multi-campus University which is making a positive and lasting difference to local and global communities.

Christ Church has a vibrant community of more than 15,000 students and 1,800 staff studying and working across its network of campuses and centres in Canterbury, Medway and Tunbridge Wells, and it is one of only a handful of universities in the UK to be situated in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With nearly 90% of research submitted to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework assessed as world-leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised, the University is proud of its contribution to society and the economy, and will continue to look for new opportunities to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

The main University’s library is in the award-winning Augustine House. Located in Canterbury city centre, Augustine House opened in 2009 and has won several architectural awards for its contemporary design and its commitment to sustainability; a major feature of the building. During exam times, the library is open 24 hours for students, and external visitors can use the facilities between 8.30am and 6pm. There is also a library in the University’s Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology in Tunbridge Wells and the Drill Hall Library at its Medway Campus (shared with the Universities of Kent and Greenwich).

Christ Church has a print collection that matches our teaching and learning philosophies and an unusual collection of curriculum resources to complement our range of teaching qualifications. We subscribe to 800 individual journal titles alongside over 130 databases and journal packages. Our archives and special collections includes a children’s literature collection, a Gaskell collection and the Mary Braddon archive, John Jewel’s A Defence of the Apologie of the Churche of Englande, Conteining an Answeare to a Certaine Booke Lately Set Forthe by M. Hardinge, and Entituled, A Confutation of &c. (1611 edition) along with a Latin edition of Newton’s Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica.

We hope that our expanding collection will prove beneficial to academics everywhere, hence our inclusion on SUNCAT. For more information visit our website. Keep an eye on twitter @ccculibrary for the latest news. You can contact us by email library.canterbury@canterbury.ac.uk or call us on 01227 782352.
