There are significant library resources at Keele to support Humanities research, including Early English Books Online (EEBO) and Eighteenth Century Collections Online (ECCO), as well as the private David Bruce Centre Library for American Studies students and the Staffordshire Studies repository for those interested in local writers. Keele is ideally located near to other major libraries and collections, such as Manchester's John Rylands and Chetham's Libraries, Gladstone's Library at St Deiniol's, and the University Libraries of Birmingham, Oxford and Liverpool.
