The Avril Robarts Library (formerly the Avril Robarts Learning Resource Centre, or "LRC") is one of the three designated libraries belonging to Liverpool John Moores University in Liverpool, England. It is located at 79 Tithebarn Street and serves LJMU's City Campus on Byrom Street. The award-winning building was designed by the architect firm Austin-Smith:Lord and was built in 1997 (who also designed the Aldham Robarts LRC).[1] The Avril Robarts Library has a gross floor area of 6,159 m2 (66,290 sq ft), which makes it the largest of the three libraries/LRCs.[1] The four-storey building contains 308 personal computers alongside countless books and online catalogues that cater mainly for the faculties of Health and Applied Social Sciences, Science and Technology and Environment.[2] Wi-Fi is available throughout the complex, which can be entered by scanning a relevant student ID card by the ground floor turnstiles. Other services available in the Library include research and learner support, enrolment, student finance, coursework submission, welfare and counselling and employability advice. The Avril Robarts LRC is open 24/7 during term time, albeit some services are restricted.[2]

It is a member of the Libraries Together: Liverpool Learning Partnership (evolved from Liverpool Libraries Group) which formed in 1990. Under which, a registered reader at any of the member libraries can have access rights to the other libraries within the partnership.[3][4]
