Using the Library

For track and trace purposes, we are asking all students to sign in at the library help desk to use either a study space or a computer. We now also have 20 new chromebooks available to use while you’re in the library - ask at the helpdesk where we can issue one to you and allocate you a study space.

A big thank you to all you students who have been so brilliant at adapting to all these changes - we know it’s not easy, so well done!
