Access to Special Collections and Archives

Due to building work the Special Collections and Archives Reading Room will relocate from the basement to the first floor of the Grove Wing in the Sydney Jones Library from mid April until September 2008.

To allow for relocation the Reading Room will be closed from 17th to 22nd April inclusive.

From 23rd April onwards a temporary Reading Room with accommodation for five readers will be operated. However, those researchers intending to visit must contact us in advance to make an appointment and to supply reference numbers for any materials they wish to see.

It should be noted that due to the refurbishment of the lift materials will have to be hand-carried from the basement stores. Unfortunately, in practice, this means that most classes of material will be inaccessible.

Materials that will not be available are included under the following headings:
Large books
Multi-volume sets

We shall endeavour to retrieve materials wherever possible, but without advance notice we will be unable to guarantee accommodation or delivery of materials.

Telephone: 0151 794 2696
Fax: 0151 794 2681

Electronic book survey from Ebrary - iPods and T-shirts up for grabs

The library is working with ebrary to better understand e-book usage and needs among college and university students. We’d greatly appreciate it if you took a brief Student E-book Survey.

The survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete, and almost all the questions are optional.

To show appreciation for your time, you will be entered into a drawing for a FREE iPod of your choice. You pick the model, size and colour! Also, every 25th participant will receive a free T-shirt.

If you have problems following the link above, go to the Ebrary website and look for Student E-book Survey.

E-resources accessibility weekend 8-9 March

Major electrical work is being carried out over the weekend of Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th March. While Computing Services Division are minimising the disruption to services to the greatest degree they can, there is a possibility that library web pages, and the electronic resources available through them (including the library catalogue), may not be working fully at certain times during this weekend.
