Salford Local History Library
The library situated at Salford Museum & Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday and holds a huge collection of photographs, documents and newspapers relating to Salford’s past. It is increasingly popular for family history research, delving into the history of the houses, school projects and community heritage in Salford.

University of Salford
University of Salford Community Access is a partnership between Salford’s public libraries and the University of Salford. The aim is to improve access to library resources for the whole Salford community by providing a more extensive and accessible library service.
One of the main features of the scheme is that it is easy to join, removing as many barriers as possible to enable participation in learning.
Members of Salford public libraries can register as a member of the university library and receive their own membership card which will enable them to borrow from the university’s libraries and come and go as they please. You will need to show proof of identity with your address on such as a recent utility bill, or driving licence.
Members of the university can join Salford’s public libraries, using university registration cards as proof of identity. The access scheme is open to anybody who lives, works or studies in Salford.
