Summer vacation - Sat 10 June to Sun 17 September

From April 2017 until Summer 2018 Library services operate from two buildings: study space and services are located in the URS Building; printed materials are still available to borrow from the adjacent Library building. This is to provide a quieter working environment whilst the Library Refurbishment Project gathers pace.
