In the lead up to the exam period The Sir Duncan Rice Library will be extending its opening hours to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. There are just a few days until this happens and we want to let you know just now so that you can properly plan your revision.
The Sir Duncan Rice Library will open at 11.00 on Sunday November 17, and stay open continuously until 22.00 on Friday December 13, 2019.
Please note that there will only be swipe card access after 22.00 – please ensure you have your ID card, as access will not be permitted without it.
Also, in the run up to and during the exams Floor 5 of The Sir Duncan Rice Library will be designated as a Silent Study Area across the whole floor. Please see our separate blog post for further details on this.
Over this period it is important that you are aware of the following:
- The PCs require a nightly shutdown (lasting about ten minutes) and reboot for essential maintenance. This will happen at 04.00, and you will be given an option to delay this for 2 hours.
- Essential cleaning of the building will be carried out overnight between 02.00 and 06.00, which may result in some disruption.
- Look after yourselves and your belongings – take breaks, but do not leave your personal belongings unattended.
- Take care if leaving the Library in the early hours – travel with friends if possible.
Please respect the building and your fellow library users:
- Hot and cold drinks in covered containers can be consumed in the Library.
- Cold food (preferably not with a strong smell or noisy!) can be consumed anywhere in the library except for the silent study rooms, co-labs, bookable group study spaces and the Special Collections Centre. Remember – no hot food allowed.
- Tidy up after yourself – use the bins which are available on each of the floors.
- Keep talk to the group study areas to allow others to study.
Please report any problems to security staff on duty – in person (Information Centre,
Floor 1, TSDRL) or by phone (01224 273330).
Also check out the opening hours for our other two Library sites, as Taylor and Medical will not be open 24/7 during these dates.
