Upcoming changes to Click & Collect service

From Monday 24 August Click & Collect is moving!

Your Library Team have been working hard planning and rearranging the Library services and spaces for Autumn Term so that we can continue providing you with the resources you need under socially distanced circumstances. To help with this we’re going to continue the Click & Collect service during the Autumn Term. As the service will be much busier in term time we needed to find it a new home where we could accommodate all the items you’ll be collecting. From Monday 24 August the Click & Collect service will be available from the Short Loan Collection area on the Ground Floor. This is the area that faces the Palmer Quad, opposite the Palmer Building.

You won’t have to come into the main entrance to access the Click & Collect service. You can enter (and exit) the area via doors from the path along the Library side of the quad. We’ll temporarily convert the existing fire doors there to accommodate this.

You’ll also be able to borrow your books yourself via the Self-Issue machines again. We’ve moved the machines in the Short Loan Collection so that you can use them after we’ve handed your books to you and before you leave the building. We will have sanitiser and wipes available for you to use.

The Click & Collect system itself remains the same so you can still place your holds in the same way. For more information on how to place holds, visit the Library website.

Moving the service allows us to adapt our queuing system in the foyer so we can provide one route to access the Café and another to access study space and the IT Service Desk. We are aiming to open for access to study spaces from Monday 7 September. More details about this will be available soon.
