Important information: Senate House Libraries moves – STAGE 3

Senate House Libraries moves – STAGE 3
July 2011:

Starting from Monday July 11, 2011, we will begin the 3rd and final stage of the Library moves, dealing with collections in the publicly accessible areas of the library.

The first part this move will take place throughout July. During this time, periodical sequences in the 3rd Floor South Block and temporary North Block areas on the Ground and 2nd Floors will be relocated to the Library Tower.

In future, access to all periodical collections will be via the stack fetching service although please note that many periodicals titles are now also available in digital form. (Please also note that recent issues of periodicals titles are NOT affected by these moves).

Additionally during July, the IHR Library will re-locate temporarily from its current location in the North Block of Senate House to the 3rd Floor South Block.

These moves may mean that specific items in these collections are unavailable for short periods while they are in transit, normally no longer than 1 – 2 days.

A schedule of these moves will be posted on the library website. This will enable you to see which collections are scheduled to move on particular days.

Please refer to the library enquiry desk if you require further information or advice.

More information on the second part of these moves in August will follow shortly.
