Getting to the books
Ground floor – On the ground floor, shelving block 2, holding shelf marks 004.22 – 004.65 is currently covered in plastic and temporarily inaccessible. Please carry on filling out reservation cards for anything you cannot get at. We are dashing in after dark when there is not building work going on to retrieve and reserve books on a daily basis now, so you will not have long to wait until you get the email inviting you to collect books you have reserved filling in a card.
First floor – The shelves containing books with shelf marks from 616.8 – 624.1834 have hazard tape across them but you can still go past the barrier to get books. There may be sawdust and other materials drifting down from the roofing work, so please take care, particularly with where you are putting your feet and when looking up. If you prefer, you are welcome to complete a reservation card for the books you want or ask a member of staff to retrieve your books for you. The scaffolding tower being used to access the roof might block access to certain books but it is on the move and so will restrict access to any one section for only a very short time.
