Following latest Government guidance the Library has now reopened for browsing and choosing your own books at Southend between 10am-4pm Monday - Saturday (closed Sundays). There is no need to book but numbers will be restricted to 25 people browsing at any one time. Students and staff should limit browsing time to no more than 20 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 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:
