Visiting the Engineering Library

We are now able to offer members of the department access to the library between 9am and 5pm weekdays. If the department has given you access outside of these times, you can stay past 5pm. We do ask that you do not arrive before 9am to allow us time to adequately ventilate the space before people arrive.

To maintain social distancing, we have limited spaces for people to sit and work, and we ask that you use the anti-bacterial wipes provided to clean your space when you arrive and leave. Hand sanitiser is available on walls and desks. Windows will be kept open throughout the day for ventilation reasons, so we suggest bringing layers as the weather gets cooler. When using the library spaces, unless you are exempt from doing so, you are expected to wear a face covering.

Please avoid using the library as a corridor and please do not leave your belongs in a study space whilst you are at lectures or labs.

The measures that have been put in place are there to keep all of us safe.
