Advance notice: 2011 Collection moves

Collection moves will be taking place at Senate House Library from May 2011 to the end of September 2011.

These essential moves are necessary in order to accommodate the return of the Library into the newly refurbished areas of Senate House, as well as manage space for ongoing building work elsewhere. The moves will be on a grand scale and entail relocating hundreds of thousands of books in a number of interconnected sequences.

As a result some of our collections will become temporarily unavailable while they are in transit. It will also be necessary to close the Library for sometime in the summer. More details and specific dates will be published when they are confirmed.

We will do everything we can to minimise disruption to users and to provide advance warning. If you are making a special journey to the Library between May 2011 and the end of September 2011 please check our website for the latest information and confirm with staff that the item(s) or collections you wish to consult are available for your visit.

The 2011 collection moves into the newly refurbished areas will enable us to offer a hugely upgraded study environment and collection space. This will provide a greatly improved experience for users, with new desks, infrastructure and navigation, all within a unified Library space.
