University of York Library: Construction work scheduled for summer vacation

The J B Morrell Library refurbishment project is scheduled to move into Phase 6 immediately after the end of the summer term: refurbishment of the ground floor of the Library to include a brand new entrance, staffed service areas and a larger cafe.

All Library services will be maintained while the ground floor refurbishment is underway, but some relocation will be necessary. Importantly, the Key Texts collection will be housed in the seminar rooms on the ground floor of the Raymond Burton Library between July-December 2011.

Freshers cafe and the internal link between the Library and Harry Fairhurst building will be closed from July while work on the Library’s ground floor is underway. There will be a temporary entrance to the Harry Fairhurst building until the link is reopened.
