Summer Lighting Project – may restrict access to some resources

Summer Lighting Project – may restrict access to some resources

The introduction of 24 hour opening and its popularity with students mean that electricity consumption in the Campus Library has increased significantly during the last two years.  

We know that green issues are important to students so, in order to be more energy efficient, Estates will be upgrading the lighting in the Library between early June and mid-September. 

We are undertaking this project during the summer (starting Monday 2 June) in order to minimise disruption to our users but, inevitably, there will be times when certain areas of stock won't be publicly accessible.

We will operate a stock retrieval service for these areas but you may need to allow 24 hours for your request to be retrieved. We will put out information about which class-marks are affected at which times on the Library website and Facebook pages and via the Library blog. 

Thank you for your patience during this period. We think that the benefits in terms of improving our environmental sustainability are well worth it.
