Maths & Stats Library News Library News for Maths & Stats students | Summer Term & Vacation 2014

More Library refurbishment, Summer 2014 You say you love the Library’s refurbished Silent Study 5th Floor, and both the quiet and collaborative study areas on the refurbished 2nd Floor and you want more. So you’ll love what’s planned for the Library’s 3rd and 4th Floors this summer … rd


As well as refurbishing the 3 and 4 Floors this summer we’ll also be doing Ground Floor decoration, new toilets and upgraded staircases! Another £2.4 million of University investment enables work to begin in earnest after exams on Monday 16 June. It is due for completion by the end of September 2014. How will works affect me, summer 2014?  The Library remains open to provide services to Library users around works. However, please note:  Further stock moves will take place on the 3rd and 4th Floors from June. This includes relocating the Teaching Practice Collection and music CDs to the 3rd Floor.  Access to the 3rd Floor Arts and Humanities and 4th Floor Social Sciences material may be restricted, section by section. However we will operate a fetch and carry service where material is out-of-bounds.  Please use alternative PC and study space whilst Rooms 111, 110 and 109 are closed to users. Our newly refurbished 5th and 2nd Floors remain open throughout.  Both sets of Ground Floor toilets will be closed for refurbishment, reopening eight weeks later - please use alternative facilities on the Library’s 5th Floor or in the nearby HUMMS Building.  Noise: You will experience noise from drilling through floors and walls throughout the project, although we will try to restrict this to early mornings before 10:00.
