From Monday 17th May you no longer need to book if you wish to use the printer, browse the shelves, or visit the library helpdesk. Instead, you can check in at the library on arrival using your smart phone by scanning the QR code.
You are now ready to use the printer, browse the shelves, check out or return books, borrow a laptop or ask a question at the helpdesk.
Remember, if you want to print you should send your documents in advance using the mobile printing service.
If you would like to use a study space please book a study space online.
Opening hours of The Forum for browsing and choosing books is 9 – 5pm (Mon - Sat) where members of staff will be available. Outside of these hours, University members can still browse and issue books to themselves using the self service machines 24/7. There is no need to book for browsing but numbers will be restricted to 50 people browsing at any one time. Students and staff should limit browsing time to no more than 30 minutes. These restrictions apply to the first and ground floor only – the Learning Hub remains open 24/7 and study spaces should be booked in advance. The click and collect service will continue to run alongside browsing.
The Info Point will now be staffed for 2 hours a day (12 - 2pm, Mon - Fri).
The University is monitoring and following all advice from Public Health England, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, and the World Health Organisation and will review all guidance daily. Please see the information below for the latest updates:
