COVID-19

During lockdown, both of our libraries are open from 8.30 – 5, Monday to Friday, though we may have limited staffing at times. There is no need to book ahead – you can drop-in, browse the shelves, use the IT and study as normal.

From 5th November, face masks or coverings must be worn at all time in the libraries, even if studying individually, unless exempt or when eating or drinking.

We have put measures in place to keep you and our staff safe – please read and observe these during your visit.

Visit our COVID-19 Resources page for our latest Evidence Bulletins.
