Welcome to the Library!

We would like to welcome all our new and returning students to the Library this academic year.

Over the summer we have had numerous changes including new Inspiration (mind maps for visual learning) assistive software, available in the Assistive Technology Area and also Accessible Study Room 214.

We have improved our Accessible Study Rooms by decorating, installing phone lines pre-programmed with essential numbers and having automatic doors installed. We have also scrapped the use of a PIN number, and access is solely by the University card used to make the booking.

We also have a new Accessible Study Room with adjustable furniture and assistive software, now available at LG2, University House.

Accessible Study Room 505 has been modified to become Sensory Study Room 505 ; a study and sensory space with additions such as a bubble tube, rocking chair, bean bag and sensory objects. We need your feedback!! Please get in touch via the online feedback forms, email (link) or use the post its and feedback box provided in the room.

You said:

Rooms to be bookable for longer?

We listened:

Rooms are now bookable for three hours per day rather than two.

Ability to stay in a room if not booked?

We listened:

Once you have exceeded your three hour daily booking limit, you are now able use the door controller to book additional half hour slots, provided the room has not been booked by another customer. You can only book the current slot for example, if you want the 12.00 - 12.30 slot, you can only book this after 12.00. You will need to repeat this process each half hour.

Advanced booking time to be increased?

Rooms can now be booked four weeks in advance as opposed to two.
