The Brynmor Jones Library (BJL) is the main library at the University of Hull. In 1967 it was named after Sir Brynmor Jones who initiated research in the field of Liquid Crystals (LCD) at Hull and became Head of the Department of Chemistry in the 1930s. He was the Vice-Chancellor of the University from 1956 to 1972.

The building consists of two main sections, the older front section which is five floors high (originally three which were later subdivided) and the newer extension, completed in 1969, which consists of 8 floors plus a basement. The new section has three lifts for student use and a fourth lift for staff.It contains books and reference materials mainly for use by students at the university. There are also a large number of open access computers within the library which are connected to the University network.

A swipe card is required for access and to take out books.

Poet Philip Larkinmarker was librarian here from 1955 until his death in 1985.
