floor is due to open next week. The books for that floor have now been moved
from ground floor decant. Library staff will continue to assist users to
locate items and also offer a retrieval service until the 5th floor
opens next week.
·All books have been moved from the decant area to the redeveloped floors in the
tower. This means that the decant area, which has
played such a vital part in the successful management of all the book moves
over the past twelve months, is no longer needed. It will therefore be closing next week to
allow work to start on the development of the gallery and exhibition spaces.
·As a result of
the closure of the decant area, the principal route to the Reading Room and the
2nd floor east between 09.00 and 18.00 will be through the entrance
on the south side of the building, facing Larkin West. After 18.00 the
only access to these areas will be via the lift adjacent to the reception desk
at the front of the Library.
access arrangements are expected to start on Monday, any change to this will be announced
floor is on schedule and is expected to open, including the
postgraduate research lounge, in early April.
