INFO: Busy Library this weekend?

The University Library continues as a venue for the fascinating British Science Festival this weekend (8 and 9 September). We are also looking forward to welcoming additional visitors through the Open Doors and Alumni events which take place on campus on Saturday and/or Sunday. Library opening hours on both days are 08.30 – 21.00. If you are using the library for quiet study at the weekend we’d recommend one of the silent study rooms on Floor 4 or 5.
