With the Paternoster lift down, we know that navigating the library is going to be more difficult, so we've opened up more access routes to help you get around the library with ease.

A refurbishment programme for the paternoster is in progress and due for completion in early 2021. Progression has been delayed by COVID-19 and the new completion date is expected to be January 2021- this is subject to change due to any further complications that may arise in light of the pandemic. During the work it is likely that there may be some disruption caused, but we will liaise with colleagues in Estates to keep this to a minimum and to warn our users in advance of any particularly noisy or disruptive periods.
