Refurbishment at Abertay

Abertay University are undergoing a refurbishment. The Library building will be closed from 5th. May – 28th August.

A book retrieval service will be in operation, but they would advise any SCONUL Access members wanting to avail themselves of this that they should email sez@abertay.ac.uk with the details before coming in. There is a temporary front desk service location in our Student Centre, where we can process new applications as normal, but please advise your students that it will not be a full service.

Study facilities will be extremely limited so they would not recommend sending Band R members over the summer as there will be limited study space and no ability to browse the shelves or use items for reference.

University of Reading Library – impact of refurbishment

The University of Reading Library is currently undergoing a Library Refurbishment Project. From 18 April until at least August 2018 the Library will be providing services from two buildings on the Whiteknights Campus. The Library will continue to hold printed stock but study spaces will be transferred to the URS Building.

SCONUL members in Bands A,B and C may still register to use Library stock by calling at the URS Building Information Desk. They will be able to borrow materials from the Library Building as well as use the study spaces in the URS Building.

However, full-time undergraduates registered as Band R members may only study in URS Building study space, or view and copy stock at the Library Building, but may not borrow stock to study in the URS Building.

No Band R access at SOAS Library from 1st September 2015

From 1 September 2015, SOAS will offer SCONUL Bands A, B and C only. Band R (reference access for full time undergraduates and some outside the other categories) will no longer be offered. We have taken this action due to the increasing demands for access to SOAS resources and study spaces.
