Wellcome Unit Library closed for re-wiring: 25 July-1 September

The Wellcome Unit buildings will be undergoing electrical re-wiring work throughout the summer vacation this year. From Tuesday 5th July until the end of September, visitors to the Unit should be aware that they may encounter noise, mess and disruption due to this.

The library itself will be closed for re-wiring work on the following dates, with no access to the collections:

Tuesday 5th July

Monday 25th July – Wednesday 31st August (inclusive)

If you know of a book that you will need during this period and that is not available elsewhere in Oxford, then please contact the librarian-in-charge, as far in advance as possible, and we will try to arrange alternative access.

Many apologies for any unavoidable inconvenience this work may cause.
