The University of Sydney will be in full closedown mode from Saturday 17th December to Monday 2nd January inclusive. This email is to inform you of the arrangements for Library access and borrowing during this time.
Please also be advised that Patrick O'Mara, Liaison Librarian for LPAB students, will be on leave from Thursday 8th December 2016 and will return to work on Monday 9th January 2017. Information about how to seek help from the Library during this period also follows.
The Herbert Smith Freehills Law Library and Fisher Library will close at 5pm on Friday 16th December 2016 and reopen at 9am on Tuesday 3rd January 2017. There will be no access (this also means no 24/7 access) to the Law Library or Fisher Library during the closedown period.
No books will have a due date that falls during the closedown period. This includes any books that are recalled.
Any book borrowed from Saturday 10th December onwards will not be due back until after the closedown period even if it is recalled (this obviously excludes 2 Hour items).
If any book currently checked out to you is recalled from Saturday 10th December onwards it will not be due back until after the closedown period.
Distance students should ensure that all book requests are submitted well before the closedown period to ensure the best possible chance of the requested book being available and able to be posted to you prior to the closedown period.
Patrick O'Mara, Liaison Librarian for LPAB students, will be on leave from Thursday 8th December 2016 and will return to work on Monday 9th January 2017.
