The McClay Library Expansion Project – August 2019 Update

This is the latest in a series of regular updates to keep you informed on progress of the McClay Library Phase 3 expansion project.
The project is progressing well and is currently concentrated in the following areas:
Student Lounge
Work in this area is underway and will continue until September. There is access to some seating, to the vending machines and to the water filters. However, there are currently no toilet facilities in this area.

Special Collections
Work on the extension to the Special Collections store is ongoing with access via staircase 1 and the Special Collections Reading Room. As a result, readers consulting Special Collections are currently being relocated to the Special Collections Seminar Room.

Short Loan Collection
The Short Loan collection is being moved to its new location in early August. Access to items in the collection will be maintained throughout the relocation process as much as possible so if you require a particular item, please ask at the Borrower Services desk.

Ground floor atrium area
Work on this area is ongoing to fit out the new Language Teaching and Resource rooms. There may be some restrictions on access to facilitate this.
The IT Service Desk will be re-located to the other side of the atrium temporarily.
While we will do our utmost to minimise any disruption (and particularly disruptive work will be completed out of hours or carried out as early in the morning as possible), please note that this is a major building project so there may be some background noise.
If you have any particular feedback or questions, please contact:
