The Library would like to wish everyone a joyous and safe holiday period! 

Our campus Library services will be closed from Friday 24 December 2021 to Monday 3 January 2022. 

We will reopen on Tuesday 4 January 2022. See our Library hours webpage for more information. 


While we are closed, you can access our digital resources. These resources can be accessed online 24/7 from wherever you are.
