University of York Library & Archives closure - 23 July

Following last year's successful Library & Archives Staff Training Day, we have scheduled a follow-up event on Friday 23 July, 2010. This will focus on the quality of our customer service, and given the current refurbishment and the feedback we are receiving from users on library services during this work, the need to have a meeting for all staff has been strongly reinforced.

We therefore intend to close the Library & Archives (JB Morrell, Raymond Burton and King's Manor Libraries and Borthwick Institute for Archives) on Friday 23 July for this purpose.

Please contact Stephen Town (, x.3863) about any adverse effect on specific academic requirements this may cause, so that we can make arrangements to mitigate these.

The catalogue and electronic resources will remain available on 23 July; Key Texts and DVDs borrowed on 22 July will be due back on 24 July.
