Library & Learning Commons: Home

Library closed until January 2021

We have taken the decision with the Faculty of Humanities for the Avenue Library & Learning Commons to remain closed until January 2021. It is guided by the need to make additional short-term space available for teaching and learning, and difficulties ensuring the Library & Learning Commons would be COVID-secure for staff and students. 

From the start of term, print Course Collection materialLanguage Learning Resources and DVDs held at Avenue will be available from the Click & Collect service, with collection at Hartley. The loan period will be extended so that students do not have to return the material the following day.

Please contact if you have any questions.
