How will I find out about changes to the Library service during the crisis?
Other questions you might have:
Will I be able to request that a book be recalled from another borrower?
No - if someone has a book out at the moment there will be no way for you to request it until the Library returns to normal. We will let everyone know when that happens.
What if my books are due to be returned during the closure? Will I have to pay Library fines?
No - although you may receive email requests to return books. Please ignore these until the Library returns to normal service. Any fines incurred due to late return of books will be waived.
When will my books be due back?
Any items that are out on loan now due back on 1 June 2020 and will be extended if necessary - keep an eye on email and the LLC website for updates.
Can I still request material via Inter-library loan?
Our inter-library loan service can currently only process requests for resources that are available electronically. However, as we are dependent on other organisations to supply these requests, there is no guarantee that resources can be accessed through inter-library loan - but we will do our best!
How can I protect myself and others?
Please follow NHS Advice. When using the library, please wash hands regularly with soap and water, use hand sanitizers (if available) when entering or leaving the library and after eating, and catch coughs and sneezes in disposable tissues and bin the tissues immediately. If you are studying on campus, please follow the social distancing advice from the UK Government.
What if I am unwell?
If you have a temperature, cold or a cough, please help us minimise the spread of infections and do not visit the Library. If there is a risk you have the Coronavirus, you must self isolate and follow NHS Advice.
