24-hour Opening Semester 1 2013-14
24-hour opening for the semester 1 examination period will begin on Sunday 1 December 2013 and will run until 2.00am on Friday 20 December. In the New Year, 24 hour opening will resume on Thursday 2 January and run until 2.00am on Tuesday 28 January.
During this period:
- The McClay Library will remain open overnight every Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening.
- On Sundays the Library will open earlier than in previous years (i.e. 8.00am rather than 12.00noon) and remain open all week until 2.00am on Saturday mornings. It will then re-open at 6.00am on Saturdays and close on Sunday mornings at 2.00am before re-opening at 8.00am.
- Only Library members with a valid Queen’s card will be admitted.
- Staff will carry out additional ID checks to prevent card misuse – please bear in mind that it is a disciplinary offence to let anyone else use your student card or credentials.
McClay Library Christmas and New Year Opening Hours 2013
Over the weekend before Christmas (Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 December) the Library will remain open until 2.00am as usual. The McClay Library will close for the Christmas break at 5:30pm on Monday 23rd December and will remain closed for just three days.
Between Christmas and New Year, the McClay Library will provide a supported study environment from 9.00am until 9.00pm from Friday 27 December until Tuesday 31 December inclusive.
The McClay Library will be closed on New Year’s Day (Wednesday 1 January 2014) but 24 hour opening will resume at 8.00am on Thursday 2 January 2014.
Access to the Library
Please remember to bring your student card with you when you visit the Library. If you forget your card, you can obtain a temporary card for the day from the kiosk close to Reception. However, you will not be able to use this temporary card to borrow material, to print, or to photocopy.
Short Loan Alerts
To help students avoid running up fines at the rate of 50p per hour for the late return of 1-Night and 2-Night Loans, the Library is introducing a reminder as soon as these short loan items become overdue. Previously you would have received a reminder the following day but by that time a fine of several pounds could have accumulated.
Study Environment – Food & Drink
The Library strives to provide a clean and pleasant environment for all library users and one which is conducive to study. In order to achieve this, we operate a No Food and Drink policy with the exception of drinks with secure lids. The consumption of food, including fruit and snacks, creates mess and litter which is unpleasant for other users.
