Industrial action and opening hours
There will be disruption to services and opening hours from Thursday 24 – Wednesday 30 November due to industrial action.
There is industrial action planned every day between 24–30 November inclusive.
This will likely affect when library buildings can open and how we deliver Library services. We have made plans to try to mitigate any disruption caused for students and staff on campus – however, opening hours may change at short notice.
We aim to open as many libraries as we can for as long as possible. The opening hours during the industrial action are likely to be as follows.
Edward Boyle Library
Weekdays: 9am – midnight
Weekend: opening this library will be the priority
Laidlaw and Brotherton Libraries
Weekdays: 10am – 5pm
We will open these libraries for longer hours if it is possible to do so.
Health Sciences Library and St James’s Hospital Library are likely to close.
Enquiries service will experience delayed response times.
Galleries are likely to close, although online exhibitions are still available.
