Learning Services at Christmas

We are aware the January exam period is looming, as is the start of a busy time for those undertaking dissertations, so the next few weeks may be the only time you may have to get some extra work done.  Learning Services will be here for you if you need some quiet study time.

Our additional opening hours at Christmas are always well used and this year we are pleased be able to offer more vacation opening than ever before.

The University Library will be open for 3 days during the Christmas vacation.

As well as being open Monday 23rd December, 9am – 5pm, we are open Christmas Eve, 9am – 3pm, Monday 30th December, 9am – 5pm, and New Years Eve, 9am – 3pm. You can come in and see us, find resources, get some help, use a PC, bring your books back and take out some more! As the Library is now home to the media equipment, media students are also able to access kit during the Christmas vacation, for the first time.

Our online help tool – Ask Us – is available 24/7 throughout the Christmas period for you to check our bank of answers, get in touch via email or text and, during our opening hours, use live web chat to get the help you need. Our telephone helpline is available during opening hours on 01695 584286

24/7 access to PCs in the LINC building will operate throughout the holiday period if you need a PC.

Of course you don’t have to visit us in the library, you can use us online. All our eResources will be available via our website and library catalogue so why not give them a visit. You can access 24/7:

  • 97,000+ eBooks
  • 40,000+ eJournals
  • specialist subject web pages to sign post you to the right resources for your subject

Merry Christmas, Learning Services
