The HCA Libraries are situated on both the Folly Lane Campus and the College Road Campus. Both offer a dedicated Art Library service meeting the specific needs of art college students.

Folly Lane Library

The Folly Lane Campus Library is situated adjacent to the IT suite, and covers all aspects of art, design and performing arts. It is staffed by specialist Art Librarians who offer a friendly and helpful service.
As well as books & journals the library contains an art materials shop, DVDs, careers library, study room, photocopying facilities and drop-in internet access.

College Road Library

The HE College Road Campus Library meets the specialist needs of HCA degree students with Art Librarians, course related books & journals.
The newly equipped library is beautifully positioned with picturesque views of the Black Mountains and Marches countryside. Relax in a comfy chair and peruse reviews & articles from the latest art magazines.
In the Study Room we have 1000s of journal back-copies readily accessible as well as computers with appropriate software.

HCA students can also borrow from Hereford & Ludlow College of Technology and Holme Lacy campus libraries.
