New libraries re-opening schedule


September 2nd, 2020

The phased re-opening of library buildings continues throughout September as the University prepares to welcome students back to our campuses.

Djanogly Learning Resource Centre and Greenfield Medical Library re-opened on Tuesday 1 September taking the total number of open libraries to four.

Both libraries offer:

  • book returns
  • print, copy and scan services – via mobile print
  • Click and Collect access to print items on the shelves
  • online scanning requests

Djanogly LRC is also open for browsing and access to fifty individual study spaces.

A range of safety measures are in place to keep the University community safe including one-way systems, reduced capacity and enhanced cleaning. Hand gel and wipes are available at key points throughout libraries for use before, and after, touching surfaces.

Updated schedule
Libraries staff are working hard on re-opening the remaining buildings and estimated dates are now available for all remaining libraries, plus phase two dates for those that are already open, on the Libraries website.

We expect all eight libraries to be open for selected services by the end of September, however, dates and services may change depending on essential Health and Safety checks. Libraries staff will share any changes on their website and social media channels.

Please note, the capacity of our library buildings has been lowered to support social distancing measures. Staff will be managing visitor numbers at the entrance for both long stay visits (study space) and short stay visits of up to 30 minutes (printing, browsing, collecting books). You may be asked to wait if the library is full.
