NSPCC Library - a unique collection

The NSPCC Library is the only UK library dedicated to child protection, safeguarding, child abuse and child neglect. We ensure that anyone with a professional interest in child protection and related subjects has access to the books and resources they need in their direct work with children and families.

Our Library catalogue can be accessed online and provides a wide range of resources and materials to help inform your knowledge and assist you with your research. This includes articles, DVDs, audio visual material, e-books, digital media, case reviews, journals and websites. You will find that many publications - including NSPCC research and online reports are available in full text.
