During February and March over 1.5km of print collections will be rehoused in the state of the art Western Campus Store.

Special Collections will remain open throughout the period of the moves, with the exception of Friday 6 March (when we are closed all day). Researchers should be aware that retrieval times will take longer for all collections. 

After moves are complete, collections held at Western Campus Store will be accessible via an online ordering service. Collections held onsite at Special Collections will remain available on demand. New procedures will be detailed in catalogue records.
