LIBRARY 24 HOUR SPACES - ACCESS FOR LPAB STUDENTS
As you may be aware, the Law Library and Fisher Library will be open 24/7 from 8am on Monday 25th July.
The Library will still have advertised core operating hours and outside those hours both Libraries will be staffed by security personnel only. Access to and from the buildings outside core operating hours will be via the front entrance to Fisher Library only, with the Law Library being accessible via the internal tunnel on Level 1 of Fisher Library.
Access outside core operating hours will be via swipe card only. This presents difficulties for LPAB students because your LPAB Student / Library cards are not currently enabled with swipe card access. Negotiations between different stakeholders at the University to rectify this are ongoing and you will be notified as soon as this is resolved.
The current arrangements for LPAB students and 24/7 access, until further notice, is as follows:
- LPAB students can use both the Law Library and Fisher Library on a 24/7 basis but you will need to be inside the Library at the conclusion of the Library’s core operating hours for that day. For example, on Monday 25th July, both Libraries close at 10pm and re-open the following day at 8am. You will need to be inside the Library before 10pm to use the facilities between 10pm and 8am the following day.
- Because LPAB students do not currently have swipe card access, once you leave the Library outside the core operating hours you will not be able to get back in until core operating hours resume the following morning.
- Security guards will be doing ID checks throughout the night so you will be required to have your LPAB Student / Library card with you at all times.
- Exiting outside core operating hours will be via the main Fisher Library entrance. There will be a security guard stationed there throughout the night.
