Library Survey

Help us to improve the library service.  If you have a few minutes, please complete this short survey about the library spaces and how you use them.

Summer Building Works

As part of our commitment to continually improve University facilities, we will be undertaking works over the summer in the Lady Byron area of the St Marys Road campus. This work will impact on the Paul Hamlyn Library as a number of our meeting rooms and classrooms will be temporarily repurposed and taken out of library use until September.   Rooms affected are the Carol Hehir, Ian Carter Room and Meeting Room 2 from Friday 11 May and the Mollie Clay and Carol Hehir Rooms from Friday 18 May.  All rooms will be available again for the start of the Autumn semester.

Stay Cool in the Hot Weather

If you are working in the Paul Hamlyn Library over the summer, you may find the following advice helpful.

  • Take regular breaks and drink plenty of fluids.  Water fountains are available in the Heart Space adjacent to the library entrance and in the vestibule areas of the 1st and 3rd floor toilets.  Bottled Water is available from the vending machines in the Heart Space and on the 1st floor of the Library.
  • Work on the Park side of the Library which is generally cooler.
