About Cathy Carey

Learning Spaces Coordinator , Customer Services

University Library welcome to International Students.

We have been able to update our self-issue machines in the University Library to allow some of our International Students to access the menus and functions, of these machines, in their own language.

After liaising with the International Office we have added the options of choosing Arabic, Korean and Chinese.

We have welcomed a number of International Students on Campus over the summer and we will be able to vary these language options as other International groups arrive during the year

Facebook and Twitter are our less formal mediums of communication. Any last minute notices about our service as well as any promotions, contest and events will get posted here first so you will always be up to date.

Additionally, on Facebook, you will find photographs of any events that we organise, or you can post your own. We will also share or retweet posts from other services that we think you might be interested in and you can spread the word to your friends yourself by sharing or retweeting.

LINC open access rooms.

Open access 1 in the LINC will be closed from midday on Wednesday 5th September until 9am on Monday 10th September, to allow the room to be cleared in readiness for the fitting of the new carpet. Open Access 2 will be available from 8.45am to 5pm Wednesday to Friday but the 24-7 facility will be suspended during this time.

Both the open access rooms have been painted over the summer and the fitting of the new carpet is the welcome next stage of the redecoration.

University Library prepares for new term.

Term time opening will commence on Monday 3rd September at the University Library, and at some of our sites. At the University Library, in response to student feedback, we have extended midnight opening to include Fridays and will cover 35 weeks over the academic year. Click here for full details of opening hours at all our sites.

Self Service facilities now include a coin payment option on one of the self-issue machines, which means you can still pay your fines and borrow books once the help desk is closed, and £2 photocopy cards are available from the vending machine in the foyer.

We have had all our light fittings replaced over the last 2 weeks and you will notice a much brighter Library once you return. The lights are now LED, which as well as creating a much brighter environment, will significantly lower energy consumption and carbon emissions. Reducing energy has been a priority at Edge Hill for many years & the University is committed to reducing its carbon footprint above the HE sector targets. Read more about the University’s Environment strategy on the Sustainabilty web pages.

We are expecting a delivery of new furniture, for the 1st Floor, in the next couple of weeks so please bear with us while we are preparing for this. Once in place we hope you agree the quality of the study spaces will be greatly improved.
