Building Works in the Library

Work to replace the skylights in the Oriental Institute Library is set to begin NEXT WEEK, July 11th, and run through until approximately August 9th. The builders will be accessing the skylights in the LC section, round by the journals and in the staff office and there is likely to be some noise and dust disruption during this time.

We have been told that all the books *should* be accessible to staff during the works but would ask readers that they ask a member of staff to fetch items which are close to the building work and we may have to cordon off certain sections entirely depending on the nature of the works going on.

We are working on a day-to-day basis on this and the situation may change, but we are determined that the library will remain open for the duration of the works.

Please bear with us during this disruptive time. Any further updates or details will be posted on this blog or on the Facebook page.
