Scandinavian reading room closed, Thursday 17 April

The landing in front of the Scandinavian reading room in the UCL Main Library will have its floor replaced on 17 April. As a result the area will be closed all day, Thursday 17 April. This will affect the Icelandic section, therefore a book fetching service will be in operation to ensure access to the material is not restricted. Access to the Scandinavian reading room can be gained through the two sets of stairs at the back of the English reading room.

We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause.

Graduate student at UCL? Visit the Graduate Hub…

From Thursday 10 October 2013, a new study and recreational space will be available for all UCL graduate students: the Graduate Hub.

Graduate Hub seats Seats have got integrated power sockets for laptop users

This central space, solely for the use of UCL graduate students, is located in the South Wing basement opposite the Print Room Café. Incorporating the old Graduate Common Room, the new suite of rooms comprises a seminar room for group discussion and presentations (which will soon be bookable), a breakout space with integrated kitchenette, printing and scanning facilities, and a revamped common room. From Spring 2014, the space will be further extended with a suite of individual study carrels. Following the successful model of the Research Grid, the new space is managed by Library Services and is open 24-7.

Further information on dedicated graduate spaces, and maps to all locations, can be found on the Graduate School website.

If you have any queries or comments about the space, please contact lib-services@ucl.ac.uk
