Library on Tour

Library on Tour is a Library project developed in response to your need for more study spaces at exam time. To tackle overcrowding in the Libraries during the assessment period, we open Library spaces across campus to provide extra learning spaces for all of our students. Library on Tour is publicised in the libraries, across campus and on social media.

Library on Tour takes place from Monday 7th - Thursday 24thJanuary 2019. All venues are quiet study spaces.

  1. Customer Comment

    I have used the library on tour facility for the previous 2 years and feel it is a fantastic way in which to expand supply of study space during exam season. However, I feel there is desperate need for LOT to begin maybe 2 or 3 weeks earlier than it currently does ahead of the summer assessment period. I feel the current lack of study space around this time adversely affects student experience around these times.

    Library Response

    Thank you for your feedback.
    The Library did try to secure the spaces before teaching actually finished this year, but it proved impossible because rooms were required for teaching and other activities.
    It is good to know that you have found LOT to be positive and we accept that if we could start it sooner it would help to manage the growing numbers occupying library space and would help to maintain an environment conducive to study. At the end of each academic year we review the success or failure of initiatives undertaken during the year with the intention of making improvements and your comments will be taken into consideration.
