Update to Library area in MyImperial

by Debbie

We have recently changed the default for the Favourites box in the MyImperial Library tab so that it contains one link to the library website.
MyImperial

This default will automatically be available to new MyImperial users but existing users should click on the personalise icon My Imperial Personalise icon and Restore defaults to see the change.

You can also click on Add to include your own bookmarks to favourite library web pages, e-journals, databases, etc.

Text an attendant in the Central Library

by Debbie

A3-Text-an-attendant-Jan-2013_for_webYou might have seen this poster up around the Central Library. During February, we are trialling a Text an Attendant service, which will allow you to send a text if you are being disturbed in a quiet or silent study area, and we will do our best to investigate. All you need to do is text your location e.g. level 4 journals or level 2 PCs to 020 7594 8883.

Reminder: Closure of Level 2 Central Library

by Debbie

A quick reminder: Level 2 of the Central Library will be closed from Sunday 3 July until Sunday 7 August. If you would like to borrow a book from that part of the collection (000 – 532), then please do so before the closure. For further information, please see the news post on the Library website.

Restricted access to books in Central Library in July

by Debbie

A health and safety inspection has revealed that some of the old wooden shelving on Level 2 is unstable and consequently it will be replaced this summer. At the same time the configuration of the metal shelving will be changed and the floor will be given a new concrete screed and new carpet.

Unfortunately this means that books with classmarks 000 to 532 will be unavailable from Monday 4 July until Monday 8 August. This includes books on environmental economics, EIA, environmental policy, environmental reports, energy policy, law and climate change as well as maths, computing and some physics.

Books which are out of circulation due to the work can be requested via Document Delivery and will not be counted against your annual allocation
