All change in the Central Library

by Debbie

Over the Summer, we will be re-organising the Central Library. This will involve us moving all the books into a single numerical sequence. We hope that this will help you find books more easily. There is full information on the Single Sequence Project on the library website at: The project will involve some disruption; at times, some areas of Levels 2, 4 and 5 will be closed. There will also be periods when books are unavailable as they are moved around.

There will be updates here on the blog and on the Library website as the project progresses. You can see the latest updates here.

If you have any questions, please email Katharine.

New service – Document Delivery straight to your desktop

by Debbie

The Library is now able to deliver articles requested from the British Library direct to your PC using the Secure Electronic Delivery (SED) service.

SED has many benefits; it is a more convenient service, requests arrive more quickly, and you can access the article from wherever you are without having to visit the Library.

Register for Document Delivery by completing our online registration form. Once you have registered you will be able to request items through the library catalogue. When it is available the British Library will send you an email with a hyperlink to your document. You will then have 14 days to download the document before the link expires. If you have questions, you can read the FAQ here.

Please note: Document Delivery will replace all references to Inter-Library Loans on the Library website.
