System upgrade – impact on service

From 5pm on Tuesday 5 July to 12pm on Wednesday 6 July, services in the Library will be reduced whilst we carry out an essential upgrade.
During the upgrade the following services will be unavailable:
  • library catalogue (which includes searching for books, checking your record, and inter-library loan requests)
  • book renewals
  •  self-service machines
  • payment of fines
We apologise for any inconvenience that this reduction in service may cause.
You may find the following questions and answers useful:
Can I borrow books during this period?
You will be able to borrow books at the Helpdesk during the staffed hours of 5-6pm (Tuesday) and 8am-12pm (Wednesday) only.
Can I return books during this period?
Books can be returned through the book return slot beside the disabled toilet outside the Library.
Will fines be charged?
No fines will be applied to your account on these two days.
How will I find a book on the shelf?
You will be able to search for books using Hunter, but this will only show the location, e.g. WH100 MOO. You will need to check the shelves for availability.
