Advance notice that University College Birmingham Library will be moving during the summer vacation.

UCB Library has recently implemented an e-first approach, aiming to increase online book collections whilst reducing physical stock. With fewer print copies available, the decision has been taken to offer reference only (Band R) access to all external staff/students, with immediate effect.
There will be restricted access to stock at Glasgow Caledonian University (Glasgow Campus) from Monday 20 May 2019 to Tuesday 6 August 2019. Full details are available here, https://www.caledonianblogs.net/library/2019/05/08/library-summer-shelving-project/.
