Happy holidays!

Today is the last day that library staff will be working until the new term starts on 4 January 2022. We wish you all a very happy holiday and a hopeful new year.

Before we go, I just wanted to remind you of library service arrangements over the holidays:

Email enquiries – After 4 pm today (Thursday 23 December 2021), emails received by the library will not be read until 4-6 January.

Online chat – After ca. 4.50 pm today, online chat will be staffed exclusively by our out-of-hours support team. If you have a complex enquiry and you want to ask a member of our enquiries team, please try to contact us by around 4.30 pm today to make sure we have enough time to resolve your enquiry completely.

University Collect – Covid-19 lateral flow test kits may only be collected from the University Library while library staff are on duty. This means that after 5 pm tonight, you will be unable to collect test kits from the library until 9 am on Tuesday 4 January. While our Security Team will be present whenever the library is open over the holiday period, they are unable to issue Covid test kits.

Library holiday opening hours – The library is closed over Christmas and New Year but open in between. Please check the library opening hours webpage before visiting to avoid disappointment.

Need help over the holidays?

Our online chat service and telephone helpline (+44 (0)23 9284 3228) are both available 24/7 all year round and are continuously staffed by our out-of-hours support service throughout the holidays.

Our electronic resources are all available 24/7 from anywhere. You may need to install and configure the VPN before you are able to access some eresources. Setting up the VPN is very straightforward. A stepwise video VPN setup guide is available on MyPort.
