Anyone planning to visit the Library should remember to bring their staff/student card as it will be required to gain access to the building. Full vacation opening hours will commence on Monday 7 September.

PCs and printing facilities are now available on the ground and first floors and the wireless network is fully operational throughout the building, apart from the cafe area. Additional PCs will become operational over the next few days. Self issue facilities are also available on all floors.
