The referendum asking if the Hartley Library should be open '24 hours a day, year-round' has prompted questions about the opening hours of other libraries.

Please could you provide more details as to whether the University is doing anything to review the opening hours of its other libraries, to ensure that students have access to the resources they need?

I have been in conversations with the library team about the opening hours of libraries at other sites. I have made some progress with regards to Avenue and SGH, but the delay comes because finding the funds to keep the libraries at sites open needs to be found. I cannot announce any concrete plans until I have confirmation from the library that they have secured funds to keep these other libraries open. As soon as I have that, I will publicise it – I am definitely working continuously on this. The reason that there hasn’t been work to extend the library at NOCS is because the feedback the library has from students that use it is that they are happy with the opening times. If this is not the case please do get in contact with me.

If you have any other concerns or feedback about libraries at sites do send me an email at
