Join the CILIP Yorkshire & Humberside Member Network for a tour of the new Laidlaw Library at the University of Leeds.
The Laidlaw Library was opened in May 2015, and has now survived its first wave of new students. It boasts over 900 study spaces, including facilities for group work and bookable spaces, and also has on-site academic skills support, convenient café facilities, and lights that change colour. It contains the High Demand Collection and Core Texts, transferred from the Edward Boyle Library.

How to get there
The Laidlaw Library is on Woodhouse Lane, just south of the Parkinson Building (the clock tower). It is approximately 20 minutes' walk from Leeds train station.
Bus number 1 (calls at the Infirmary Street stop, by the railway station) and number 6 both stop outside the Parkinson building. Please bear in mind buses will be slower than advertised during rush hour.
Free parking should be available. Turn onto the campus in front of the Parkinson Building and follow Cavendish Road around the back of the Laidlaw Library to find the car park.
