About Us

About Sidney Martin Library

Established in 1967, the Sidney Martin Library at Cave Hill fosters intellectual growth and provides the information resources needed to support the teaching, learning and research activities of our students, faculty and staff.  Our mission is to support the UWI community in its quest to be known as an institution of excellence by embracing the traditional and emerging values of higher education that underpin this goal. The Sidney Martin Library through its services and resources, will foster the development of information literacy, IT skills development, innovation, entrepreneurship and life-long learning. Our librarians will work with you as you research, write, teach. Our vision is to become a model of modern academic librarianship, bringing people and relevant information together in innovative ways.

The Special Collections include a growing West Indian Collection, the Nita Barrow Collection papers, artifacts, books (listed in UNESCO's Memory of the World Register), the George Lamming collection, the Olga Lopes Seale materials (housed at the Elizabeth Watson Audiovisual Unit), and the recently received papers of Prof. Kathleen Drayton.
