The Student Centre will remain open 24/7 throughout the winter break, including on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

All other library sites will close by 17:00 on Friday 23 December and we plan to re-open them on Tuesday 03 January 2023. 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 Friday 16 December will be due back on 04 January 2023.

The last day to request an item from our Scan and Send and Click and Collect services will be Monday 19 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.
