Update after flooding, Tuesday 10 Jan

Due to a water pipe failure there was a significant leakage on Saturday 7th January.  The Library was closed around midday on Saturday and was partly re-opened from 10am on Sunday 8 January.
Update as of Tuesday 10 January - from 8.30am, the Top Floor of Campus Library is AVAILABLE FOR USE.  
  • The book retrieval service is no longer necessary as there is full access to all book stock.  
  • The ceiling above the normal location of the self-service check-in/out terminals is still unsafe so they have been moved to an adjacent area but are available for use as normal now.
  • All but one of the quick access catalogue PCs is available for use - Library Search may be used to find location of books, place requests etc
Additional study space that had been made available in Chancellors Building throughout 24  hours will now be restricted for use until 10pm as usual.
We apologise for the inconvenience this will have caused.

Flooding - latest

The Campus Library reopened on Sunday 8th January. However parts of the building remain unavailable while safety is checked and stock is assessed for water damage. In particular the top floor is currently inaccessible, although we hope to open this up again soon. We will endeavour to provide updates when we can.

Major Incident Campus Library 
Due to a major flooding incident on Saturday 7th January 2017, it has been necessary to close the Campus Library.

Provisional arrangements from Sunday 8 January

The Campus Library will endeavour to re-open from 10am for 24 hours a day.
However, the Top Floor will NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR USE until further notice -  a book retrieval service will be provided from the Service Counter to enable books to be loaned but there may be a delay before the books can be retrieved. Some other areas of the other two floors of the Library might also not be accessible.

Self-service machine move

If you're looking for the self-service unit in Short Loan, it isn't there any longer! In order to move self-service closer to the books and increase study space, we've moved it upstairs to the mezzanine area next to the photocopier. The other self-service units are still where they were.
