From Monday 19th December, the Wellcome Unit Library will be closed for the Christmas period, and will remain unstaffed until Monday 9th January, when we will re-open as usual with the following opening hours:
Monday (9th Jan), Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 2:15pm-5pm
Wellcome Unit Library staff will still be available via email until 5pm on Thursday 22nd December, and then from 9am on Tuesday 3rd January – please contact us if you have any questions, or to make future appointments. During these two weeks, the History Faculty Library and Radcliffe Science Library will be open as usual, and will be able to provide some material on the History of Medicine. Between 23rd December and 2nd January (inclusive), these libraries will also be closed.
We hope you have a wonderful Christmas. The image below shows Christmas Day in a hospital ward in 1916 – hopefully not where you’ll be spending the festive season, but it looks pretty jolly nonetheless!
