24/7 Library Opening Hours

This week we have started 24/7 opening of the library. Usual opening hours during Semester are 9.00am - 9.45pm Monday to Friday and 10.00am - 8.15pm Saturday and Sunday. During October we increased the opening hours by opening at 8.30am Monday - Friday.
During night time hours, after 9.45pm, the library is staffed by security staff who maintain the learning space. They come on duty at 9.45pm and work until 9.00am.
We have provided training for the security staff which involved explaining about the different areas and the services and facilities that are available for students. Obviously they are trained security personnel and have the back up of the university security staff.
The advantage this year is that we have the self service kiosks which mean that students can borrow and return books at any time.
The library is very busy these days as we are nearly at the end of teaching which means revision time and exams in December.
