Changes to Short Loan Collection

The Short Loan Collection (SLC) stock is being moved from Floor 2 to Floor 3 in the Library.  This will enable us to continue to clear the second floor in readiness to hand it over to the contractors later this month.

The resources from SLC are still easily available, you just need to visit the temporary service desk on floor 3 and request your item.(mappdf.)

Access to Theses will now be limited to week days only, during office hours.  Please contact the Modern Records Centre for more information.

Library Remodelling – images of Floor 1

The Remodelling project is now really underway and the porters, student helpers and contractors have made a good start on dismantling the fixtures and fittings on Floor 1 of the Library. If you want to see what Floor 1 looks like devoid of people then visit the week 1 image gallery

There is some more information on stock moves too.  Floors 2, 3 and 4 are currently undergoing some stock relocation to create space for expansion.  If you can't find a particular resource then visit  the service desk on Floor 3 and ask, they will be more than happy help.

The enquiry desk on Floor 4 has been closed because it is very close to some shelving that is being erected.  If you have an enquiry about education, offical publications or law then go to the Floor 3 service desk and they will call the subject librarian to deal with your enquiry.

So far so good!

So far we've had some great suggestions on how to enhance and improve the internal central stairwell in the Library.  There has been a lot of focus on the problems with sound in this area, we know that this is a particular concern and it's helpful to see that the ideas coming in are related to these issues.

But sound is not the only feature, it would be brilliant if  we could get some more ideas on lighting, colour and art work to brighten the stairwell up and create a more attractive environment.  If you have an idea or suggestion that you would like to put forward and you want the chance to win a digital camera visit http://go.warwick.ac.uk/lib-remodel  to find out more.
