Finding your way around the Library

The Library Entrance is in the corner of Alexandra Square near The Base. There is a sloped access and a push button automatic door.

The building has 4 floors with a lift near the main entrance going to floors A, B and C. The lift near the toilets serves the Lower Ground, B and C floor.

Toilets are available on floors A, B and C.  There are toilet facilities suitable for wheelchair users on floors A, B and C.

If you would like a personal tour of the Library please contact Fiona Rhodes. Fiona will also discuss any issues you might encounter when using the Library.

Fire and emergency procedures

If the fire alarm goes off:

  • Leave the building as quickly as possible via the nearest exit.
  • Lifts must not be used.
  • If you are dependent on the use of a lift you should go to the nearest enclosed staircase.
  • Please make University Security aware that you are in an enclosed stair case and need assistance leaving the building. The Evac-chair (a specially designed wheelchair to transport disabled persons downstairs) will then be deployed should there be an indication of a genuine fire.
  • If you cannot hear alarms there are pagers at the Library Reception Desk which you can borrow. These will vibrate if the fire alarms sound.
