The lift works are scheduled towards the end of exams and over the semester break to keep the disruption to a minimum. Students who are concerned about the noise can find study desks on the upper floors of the General Collection. The other lifts will be operational.
During this time all materials in the Matstore including the Asian Studies Research Collection, Matstore multi-volume collections and Microforms will be closed to the public. Items from these collections will be retrieved by staff by arrangement only. There will be a form that students and staff need to fill in at the Information Point.
Journals, Music, Multimedia and Kipen Judaica collections will be still available for all students and staff though some additional help may be required for people who cannot use stairs or carry items.
The new journals display will be dismantled and all new journals will go directly to the shelves once processed.
Please be aware that because there is NO lift access to the lower ground or level 2 there may be delays in getting returned items back onto shelves.
Regular updates about the Matheson Library refurbishment will be published in this blog. To find out more about the project, check the Library website.
