Christmas Closure
The library will close on Monday 22nd Dec at 4.30pm (the LRC will close at 6pm). The LRC and Library will re-open on Friday 2nd Jan at 8.30am.

Library Closure – Thursday morning, 2nd October

Due to the first year LLB Inductions taking place this week, the library will be closed to all GDL and LPC students on Thursday 2nd October from 9.45 – 11.30am.

If you are a regular library user we would be most grateful if you can make use of one of the IT rooms on the ground floor of the LRC and we will endeavour to open the library to all students at 11.30am sharp.

Loans during the Easter vacation

Normal loan periods (3 days for F/T students, 7 days for P/T students) will apply over the Easter vacation period, because we anticipate that there will be heavy borrowing of PfP2 titles by our F/T GDL in the run-up to the PfP2 hand-in date.

Please keep track of  your library account, and renew or return your books promptly to avoid incurring overdue fees and to enable other students to access them for their research.    If the books you have on loan have been reserved, you must return them as soon as possible, either in person or by post.  We are happy to waive any overdue fees that may accrue whilst the books are in the post, but if you fail to return any reserved books, you will have to pay the full amount of overdue fees. 

Thank you for your co-operation.
