Improvement works will be taking place in the Harold Cohen Library from early June and will run throughout the summer. Part of this work involves moving books to the lower floors in the first two weeks of June.
Why are the improvement works taking place?
The improvement works are taking place in order to provide 230 extra study spaces, with additional laptops available for loan. There will also be an improved and enlarged postgraduate study room, improved air conditioning, and improved toilet facilities.
How long will the improvement works take?
The Harold Cohen Library improvement works will take place from 3rd June to 13th September 2019.
Will I still be able to access my books?
We recommend if you are a student who needs books for upcoming exams that you borrow any books you may need as soon as possible. Book loans will be extended over the summer and we will purchase extra copies of books as needed. Just let library staff know if you are struggling to find your books and we will be happy to help you.
Where else can I study?
The main reading rooms and PC centres will be largely unaffected. Work will generally take place between 8:30 and 5pm on weekdays, so the library will be quiet at weekends and in the evenings. We will continue to open the Harold Cohen Library 24 hours during the week, until 28th June when we switch to vacation hours. There are also other places on campus that you can work if you prefer. Library on Tour will be extended in the Guild until 28th June, with quiet study space available 9am - 5pm during the week, in Elizabeth Gidney Suite, Mandela Room and the Guild Library. You can use PC finder to locate available PCs across campus and the Sydney Jones Library will also be open as usual.
