While there is still ongoing disruption to our space, the library is definitely not closed. All of the library services and resources you know and love are still available.
The library can now be accessed via the front entrance again, with some additiona PCs available again in the foyer.
You can borrow our books, you just can't browse them! Instead reserve online via the library catalogue and we will let you know when it is available to collect. Call or email if you are unsure.
Please note: Reserving books for mental health members (offsite) and Royal Park staff remains unchanged.
Books can be returned via the after-hours chute located at the front entrance to the library.

Lab 2 is still available for group bookings.
