Extended opening - Arts and Social Sciences Library

New entrance of ASSL

[17 February 2010]

Last year we announced an extension to the Arts and Social Sciences opening times from 8.00am to midnight during term time. Since then we have been monitoring the use of the Library facilities and listening to student requests to extend opening at other times.

In light of these factors we have made strenuous efforts to identify additional funding to allow the Arts and Social Sciences library to open for longer at other times of the year.

From this Easter the Arts and Social Sciences Library will open from 8.00am to midnight for the Easter vacation 2010 (including the whole of the Easter weekend and University closure days) and during the summer and winter vacation the library will open from 8.00am to10.00pm. Details of the opening times are on the Arts and Social Sciences branch page.

This additional investment follows the investment of over 4 million in 2008/09 in physical improvements to the Arts and Social Sciences Library and the Medical Library plus an additional 250,000 to this year’s library budget to spend on new books.
