From Monday 1st April 2019, as part of the Library Refurbishment Project, there will be a number of book moves within the Library and to offsite storage.
We are working to ensure that access to the print book collection continues at this time and have put additional services in place to support this.
- Books with shelf marks 621.4 – 999 approx. will be moved from Floor 2 to Floor 3 to new shelving in the refurbished area of the Library.
- Books with shelf marks 540 – 621.3973 approx. will be moved to offsite storage and will return before the beginning of next Semester.
Books that are remaining in the Library will continue to be available for use by students and staff.
Between 1st April and 12th April, Floor 2 will be open for study space; and books will be accessible before they are moved.
Once books are moved to Floor 3, a fetching service will be provided from the Library Service Desk on request.
From 16th April, Floor 2 will close and Floor 3 will be open for study space and access to books, increasing capacity in the Library by approx. 200 seats.
Books that are due to move offsite are available to borrow as usual up until 12thApril.
If you have plans to use specific books between April and August, please borrow them before 12th April.
Once moved offsite, books will be available upon request.
A retrieval service similar to the current journal and thesis service will be available.
If a book is requested before 12:00 noon then it will be available the following day. (During the move this will be within 48 rather than 24 hours).
Please contact the Library Service Desk in person
or by email ServiceDesk@hw.ac.uk
or by phone 0131 451 3577 for more information and to request books.
