Progress is being made on configuring ID cards for access through the entry gates to the Library and this should be in place for current students before the end of semester.

Student lockers are available in the Library – details at the Service Desk and these will be issued via the Library Management System in the same way as books.

The Library is open 24/7 until May 16th/17th
