Brynmor Jones Library Redevelopment update: access to medical ethics and law books in the Law Collection

The Brynmor Jones Library at the Univerity of Hull has issued the following update about access to their law collection, currently housed on the first floor of the library, which contains texts that may be useful to HYMS students and staff when reading about medical ethics and law:

        In the course of our ongoing review of safety on site, it has been concluded that there will be a risk to safety over the next few weeks if we maintain public access to the space on the first floor of the tower where some of the Law books are currently being kept.  

·         With effect from Monday 6th January, public access to this space with therefore be ended, and the Library will instead provide an on-demand retrieval service for any Law books housed in this area.  Requests will be met within one hour from 9am to 9pm throughout the week, including weekends.

·         The Law books will be moved to their permanent location on the second floor of the tower in time for its opening early in March. All Law books in heavy use continue to be available as normal in the High Demand Collection in the Reading Room

·          Remember that extra study space and PCs have been reserved for students in a variety of locations on campus during the January exam period.  Details can be found at .  The Library will also be open until 2am throughout the examination period.  We are looking forward to the opening of floors 2,5,6 & 7 of the tower between the end of January and early March to add to the fantastic new space that we have already opened.
