Browse and Borrow
From Tuesday 27 October 2020, the Browse and Borrow (B&B) service is available at the Vere Harmsworth Library. Browse and Borrow allows readers to book a slot to browse the open shelves and borrow material for consultation outside the library.
Browse and Borrow sessions are available as follows in term-time:
Monday to Friday:
- Mornings: 10.00am-12.30pm
- Afternoons: 2.00pm-4.30pm
- Evenings: 6.00pm-8.30pm
Browse and Borrow bookings at the VHL are limited to 15 readers per session.
If you need to consult material in depth in the library, please book a desk or PC instead.
Demand for spaces in libraries is very high and slots become fully booked very quickly.
To assist readers in finding and booking available spaces, a new Spacefinder tool has been launched.
New slots are released 7 days in advance between 7:30-9:30 each morning, and additional slots are released each day due to cancellations and same day booking can be made before 8am.
