Library Re-Opening from Monday 6th July


Lancaster University Library entrance

Following the latest advice in regards to COVID-19, the Library has followed guidelines from the government, and worked closely with colleagues across the University, to ensure we can safely open our doors again from Monday 6th July (subject to final confirmation later this week).

The safety of everyone is our greatest priority, so we have made some changes to the way we work and our service will look a little different to usual. When we first open it will be self-service and for access to books only. There will be a limited number of people allowed in the building at any one time, and we will have access control to manage numbers. This will help us maintain social distancing. There won’t be any available study spaces, but you will be able to browse, borrow and return books with Library and Facilities staff on hand to manage the space and to help with any related problems. If you need advice or assistance with any other Library or Learning Development queries we’re still on hand to help you remotely.

For more information about the services we are providing, and to help plan for your visit, please check our FAQs about re-opening.

If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to contact us library@lancaster.ac.uk or via chat.

We are delighted to be open again and look forward to seeing you.
