Studying over the vacation

by Katharine Thompson

As the end of term is fast approaching its a good time to post a reminder of how you can access library resources over the vacation.

Firstly, the Central Library is open until Friday 21 December from 09:30 to 17:30 so you can still come to borrow books, use the computers and find a quiet corner to study.

If you want to keep your library books over the vacation please make sure you renew them before you leave College. This will stop you from getting any unexpected fines on your return in January.

Libraries close from Saturday 22 December and re-open on Wednesday 2 January 2008.

All our online resources are still available to you even when the library is closed. The new library website provides the best access to these from the Digital Library page.

Most problems with passwords and access to online resources can be avoided by setting up the Virtual Private Network (VPN) on your home PC or laptop. The ICT website has all the instructions you need to do this, or check the library Password and Access page.

If you’re away from London over the holiday and would like to use other university libraries please see our Using other Libraries page. During the vacations, when it’s a quieter time, many university libraries will allow you access to study and use print resources (most will not allow you access to online resources). I’d advise you to call the library you want to visit in advance, just in case!

Finally, please have an enjoyable and relaxing vacation.
Happy holidays!
