University Christmas Closedown 2017-18
The Library will close for business at 5pm on Friday 22 December 2017 and re-open at 9am on Monday 8 January 2017.
There will be no access at any time to the Library during the Closedown. This includes no 24/7 “after hours” access. All Library staff will be on required leave during this period. Any communication sent to the Library, or individual staff members within the Library, during the Closedown period will not be responded to until after the Library Closedown.
Availability of Patrick O’Mara, LPAB Liaison Librarian
Patrick O’Mara, Liaison Librarian for LPAB students, will be on leave from close of business Friday 15 December and will return to work on Monday 8 January.
Out of office messages will refer students to other Law Liaison Librarians until Friday 22 December. As stated above, no Library services will be available during the Library Closedown from close of business at 5pm on Friday 22 December 2017 until 9am on Monday 8 January 2017, as all Library staff will be on required leave.
As there is no access to the Library during the Closedown, no books will be able to be borrowed after 5pm Friday 22 December 2017 until 9am Monday 8 January 2017. Library items (including any items that you have borrowed that are recalled) will not have a due date that falls during the closedown period. Items will not be required to be returned until after the Library Closedown.
Distance student borrowing
Distance students should submit all requests for distance loans as soon as possible from now to have the best chance of obtaining their chosen item, as requested items may not be immediately available and may need to be recalled on your behalf. The deadline for requests is Tuesday 19th December. Requests sent after this date will not be processed until after the Library Closedown.
Access to online resources
Access to online resources will be available as usual during the Library Closedown. However, there will be no Library staff present during the Closedown to assist you with troubleshooting.
