The Student Centre will remain open 24/7 throughout the winter break, including on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Please continue to follow safety guidelines in place to protect yourselves and other people.

All other library sites will close by 17:00 on Wednesday 22 December and we plan to re-open them on Monday 10 January. We will continue to follow the government’s guidance throughout this time. Please check the Library Opening Hours for the most up to date information.

You can continue to access a wide range of online resources 24/7, available through Explore, our online catalogue. 1-week loans which are borrowed from Thursday 16 December will be due back on 11 January 2022.

The last day to request an item from our Scan and Send and Click and Collect services will be Monday 20 December. Requests made after this date will be fulfilled in January.

Help and support

Our online library chat service will not be operating during this time. If you have any questions or need more support with using online resources, you can access our Library Frequently Asked Questions or our online Library Skills training.
