With the Christmas break rapidly approaching, we’ve reached that point in the year where we confirm the Library’s closure over the holidays. However, it is worth noting that our opening hours this Christmas are slightly different to previous years:
On Monday 23rd December and Tuesday 24th December the Library will be staffed by security and will be self-service only.
Therefore you should aim to complete any transactions that require Library staff before Friday 20th December.
The Library will then be closing for the Christmas break at 1pm on Tuesday 24th December and will reopen at 8am on Thursday 2nd January.
As ever, the Computer Rooms next to the Library will be open 24/7 during this period but access to the building will require a valid ID card. If you are planning to use these facilities during the break, users may wish to check that their Library account has not expired – this is particularly relevant for our NHS users.
Library staff have been made aware that when users are borrowing books, our self-service kiosks are sometimes giving incorrect due dates on the receipts at the end of the transaction. This is due to the kiosks ‘Americanising’ the date format. Your books have been issued to the correct date on Alma – the Library management system.
If you have any doubt about the correct due date for your item(s), you can check them 24/7 from anywhere you have internet connection. Simply visit the Library homepage and sign-in to Hunter by clicking the ‘My Account‘ button in the middle of the page, or from the links in the left-hand navigation.
If you have any questions relating to your Library account, please contact the User Services team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re pleased to announce that in the new year, the Library will be installing new self-service kiosks which will make borrowing books quicker and easier. We’ll also be installing new book detection gates at the library entrance.
The works to install these new features will be carried out between 7th – 9th January 2019 and we anticipate that there will be some disruption during this period.
On Monday 7th January there will no entry to or exit from the Library through the main entrance – an alternative route through the main computer room will be available and signposted on the day.
Library users shouldn’t expect any disruption to borrowing or returning items during these works.
