Temporary closures

Starting on Monday 27th July areas of the third floor of the Sheila Silver Library will be unavailable as sections of the floor are lifted whilst new cabling is installed in the ceilings on the second floor.

The main book room will be partially closed for approximately four weeks. This will mean that there will be no public access to sections of the book stock and journals. This includes:

  • Books 800 – 999
  • Law Collection (340 – 349)
  • Journal Collection – recently received journals will be held in the High Demand Area on the ground floor
  • Statistics

If you require access to any of these collections, please speak to Library staff who will be able to collect the item for you.

Leeds Beckett students and staff are also able to place a hold on book stock on this floor. Please ask Library staff for help if you’ve not done this before or take a look at our web page and video.

The Print hub on the third floor will also be closed. Alternative printing and binding facilities can be found in the following locations:

  • Black & White, Colour printers and Binding facilities – First Floor Print area
  • Black & White printers – High Demand Area, Ground floor

A number of the Student Meeting Rooms will also be unavailable during this period. However Rooms 302,303,309 & 310 on the third floor and 106 and 108 on the first floor will remain open and bookable using the Student Meeting Room booking system.

The Silent Study Room and the Disability Resource Area will remain open as usual.

We will try to keep disruption to a minimum whilst all this work takes place and we are very sorry for any inconvenience it causes.
