Visit this page regularly to see how the Summer works are progressing and how they might affect you.

We are taking advantage of the Summer Vacation to prepare the building for the Library Extension Project construction works.

A temporary internal wall is being installed, which will divide the buildng from the construction site, and is part of a strategy to mitigate disruption from the building works. A full-height, double-sided stud partition wall will be installed throughout the three floors of the West Building.

Monday 12th August for approximately 3 weeks

The temporary wall will be installed one floor at a time, starting on A Floor and progressing up the building. This is likely to include weekend working. Notices in the building will advise you of the areas affected and staff will be available to help you to find study space away from the disruption.

During this time:

Week beginning 12th August for approximately one week

  • The self-issue machines on A Floor will not be available. Please use the machine on B Floor, or just see library staff, who will be happy to issue the books for you. 
  • The Walk-in access machines on A Floor, for use by members of the public, will not be available. Please take this into account when planning your trip (this does not apply to members of the University who will still be able to use the Library PCs).

Week beginning 19th August for approximately one week

  • The toilets on B Floor will not be available. Toilets on A & C Floor will still be open.
  • Two bays of study space close to the works will not be available.

Week beginning 26th August for approximately one week

  • The toilets on C Floor will not be available. Toilets on A & B Floor will still be open.
  • Two bays of study space close to the works will not be available.
