The libraries at Haileybury provide the pupils and staff with excellent resources. The Archive and Special Collections support the teaching at the School but they also foster intellectual curiosity and a love of learning amongst the pupils. In addition to collections, there are two specialist libraries on the Haileybury site.
THE MAIN LIBRARY
The Main Library, sited in the southern range of William Wilkin’s quadrangle, contains the main collection of books, journals and audio-visual resources. Dedicated to support of teaching and learning throughout the School, it forms a vital resource for pupils and staff.
There are over 30,000 volumes in the collection, an archive of journals not available via the eLibrary, and over 1,000 DVDs. The resources in the Main Library can be searched using the HIKS Catalogue.
There are several special collections which are used to promote and inspire a love of learning at Haileybury. HIKS is dedicated to encouraging the understanding and used of our collections by the Haileybury community and wider audiences.
