The Brynmor Jones Library closes at 12:30pm on Christmas Eve and will re-open at 8:30am on 4th January.
The University Library will be closed from 4pm on Christmas Eve to 8am on Sunday 27th December, and from 4pm on New Year's Eve to 8am on Saturday 2nd January. Remember that from Christmas Eve onwards you'll need your University card to get in.
All loaned items from York are subject to recall throughout the Christmas vacation, but you'll have a whole week to get them back. Nothing will be due back between 21st December and 3rd January inclusive. More information about York's loans and hours can be found on their website.
It's worth remembering that most of the books we buy for HYMS are available electronically, so you should be able to access them wherever you are this Christmas. The same goes for our other e-resources. If you prefer something physical, you're in the UK or Ireland, and there's another university library nearby, you can always sign up to the SCONUL Access scheme which can get you in to a large number of university libraries across the country.
