Welcome (back) everyone: Library opening hours and how we can help
A big, warm library welcome to all our new students and all those rejoining us next week!
During Induction Week (17-23 September), the Library will be open every day from 8 am – midnight. From the start of term (24 September), the Library will open 24/7 until Christmas, and again after Christmas until the end of the summer assessment period.
You can chat to a librarian online or by phone between 9am-9pm Monday-Friday and during the day at weekends. After the Library Help Desk closes, you will be put through to our out-of-hours support team. You can email us at any time and we will get back to you as quickly as we can when we are next at work. We typically answer emails within a few minutes and almost always within 48 hours, even after the Library has been closed for a few days and the emails have piled up.
Full details of when we are open, including vacation period opening times, staffed hours and warnings about any unexpected library closures can always be found on our opening times web page. Please get in touch and ask us if you need any help or advice, particularly about library services and facilities, finding information for assignments (including finding books – the library can seem a little large and confusing at first) and referencing. Even if we don’t know the answer, we are can find out who does! We have extra staff to help you laid on in as you come into the Library for the first few weeks – just look for the smiley people wearing University lanyards!
We hope to say hello to you very soon.
