Contacts & support

From April 2017 until Autumn 2019 Library services operate over two buildings: most study space and services are located in the URS Building; printed materials are still available in the adjacent Library Building, plus some study space. This is to provide a quieter working environment whilst the Library Refurbishment Project continues. 

General enquiries

Our full enquiry service operates during our 'core hours' (09:00 – 17:00, Monday to Thursday, and 10:00 – 17:00 on Fridays).  When staffed services are closed please use our Virtual Enquiry Service.

To contact a specific department in the Library see Service contacts. To contact a specific person find them on our Staff lists.
