Further important news on changes to Library services in mid-August

Most library staff and front-line services will be moving into the newly refurbished Abercromby Wing over the weekend of 10th August 2007. The book stock currently located on the ground floor of the Sydney Jones will also be moved. To enable the staff move to take place the Library will close at 6pm on Thursday 9th August and we plan to re-open at 8.30am on Wednesday 15th August.

Although the Special Collections and Archives reading room in the basement will be unaffected by the move it will also be closed as there will be no access through the building. Special Collections and Archives staff will deal with e-mails and telephone queries as usual throughout this period.

Library staff in the Sydney Jones will make every effort to answer emails on weekdays during the closure period. If you wish to contact the Library by phone then please call the Harold Cohen Library: 0151-794-5411 or 5412

There will inevitably be some disruption for users as materials are transferred to their new locations in the week beginning 6th August. It may be necessary for a user to request an item from a sequence which is being moved. Library staff will retrieve these items as quickly as possible but unfortunately, in some cases, they may not be immediately available. We apologise for any disruption caused and we will update signage to direct users to the new locations.
