About this Event

Tickets will be released weekly

Service availability:

Please be mindful of signage throughout the building and markings on the floor and bay ends which advise on maintaining social distancing and sanitisation.

Please remember to sanitise your hands regularly when in the building. There are sanitisation stations throughout.

Access

• Access is restricted to Post Graduates, Academics, Researchers and Under Graduates. There is no access for external members at the moment. You must book before you come to the library if you wish to enter the building. You must have your ID and proof of booking to gain access. You will be asked to show staff the booking on your phone or bring a print out at the main doors. Spaces are limited and so if you have not booked you will not be able to access the building.

• Please note if you leave the building, please take your belongings with you as you may lose your space

You will be able to :

  • borrow books from levels 1 and 2 using self-issue
  • Print on levels 1 and 2 Resource Zones
  • use designated study space on levels 1, 2 and 3
  • Research Reserve requests can now be made as usual via the library catalogue (FindIt@Bham), though you will need to book a place in the library in order to collect your item.

You will not be able to:

• use catalogue PCs - please make sure you have checked shelf locations prior to arrival (or have access to a wireless device)

• borrow laptops

• use the following areas in the library: group study rooms, media room, Researchers’ Suite, level 4, Library Lounge and The Wolfson Room and there is restricted access on the ground floor

What should I do on arrival?

You may have to queue outside for a short while. Please come prepared for the days’ weather conditions.

While the campus is still in restricted operations, and to keep everyone safe and secure, you should only go to the building you have booked to use. Please don’t wander the campus or access any other building.

What health guidelines do I need to follow?

All visitors to the library, in line with government guidelines, are required to wear a face covering. All students will be expected to wear face coverings at all times in the building.

Sanitising stations are in place on all floors. When using a PC wipes are provided. Users are expected to clean the machine/area before and after use to help keep everyone safe.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 do not enter the campus. If you have symptoms you should immediately self-isolate and use NHS Test and Trace. All students should continue to follow NHS guidance on social distancing and hand-washing.

Please make a note of the number of your study space as you may be asked to provide this for Track and Trace purposes if you become ill.

Food and drink

Covered drinks are allowed in the library. Food is not permitted in the library. Catering is available from the Jiffy Van, whose route and opening times are displayed on the exit door of the library café. Water fountains and hot water taps are also not in use.
