Building work in the week ahead

Wednesday 9th - Friday 18th July

  • Scaffolding will be errected outside the library on the wall opposite the new car park.
  • The empty journal shelves on level 4 will be removed.

Notice of Noise Disruption in the Medical Library

As from Wednesday 9th July 2008, the work for the Library redevelopment will begin in earnest.

This will clearly have noise and access implications for anyone wanting to use the Medical Library. We expect the disruption to continue till late October 2008.

We are very sorry for this disturbance.

We hope that the improved library interior and amenities will make it all worth while.

We'll be updating this blog with work plans for the coming weeks - hopefully this will help you plan your visits to the library around the worst of the disruption.
