Welcome back to our returning students. We hope you enjoyed your summer and are ready for the new academic year. You will find there are still some covid-19 precautionary measures in place in the library and here is a short guide to let you know what has changed and what has stayed the same:
The Library opening hours can be viewed here.
Hand sanitisers are still at library entrances, and sanitizing stations are still positioned throughout libraries.
We are still operating social distancing measures, so some study spaces are unavailable. Where spaces are not in use you will see a cross on the desk and the chair will be covered up.
Group study rooms must be booked using Resource Booker, but individual spaces do not need to be booked.
Our Click and collect service continues, and you can still request books from your home campus.
Books and Lapsafe laptops which have been on loan over the summer will be due back by 1st October. After that, books will have a loan period of up to 4 months providing they are not requested by another user. Lapsafe laptops will be 14-day loans.
From 14th September you will be able to make requests for items that are out on loan.
Soft furnishings have been returned to the libraries allowing social spaces and relaxation spaces to be opened up.
The SCONUL access scheme is set to re-start in November.
If you have any questions, you can contact the library at any time.
