Here you will find Library Lists of print and e-books from different genres for you to enjoy.

These lists have been compiled with recommendations from students, staff, the SU and Student Services. Whilst our collections are primarily to support teaching and research, further fiction and reading for leisure titles can be found via our Library Catalogue. We also recommend joining Bath or your local public library for more current fiction material.
