Christmas is coming

The Christmas vacation is approaching so here is an update on our arrangements for the vacation and the college closure.

The Library will close at 16.00 on Thursday 23 December 2010, and will re-open at 08.30 on Tuesday, 4 January 2011. The College is also closed during this time.

As of today we are issuing, and renewing, 3 week loan items until after the Christmas closure. We will be issuing 1 week loan items over the holiday from 17 December. There will be a rolling process of adjusting the due dates for items to avoid everything being due on the same date.

Don't forget that you will be able to renew items throughout the holiday via the library catalogue. We don't charge fines for closed days but do try to keep your account up to date and remember to renew your items if you are going to be away on holiday and out of reach of an Internet connection. No email reminders or notices will be sent over the holiday.

Whilst we do try to monitor our systems (e.g. library catalogue, proxy server etc) to make sure that they are available we do not monitor the library's email accounts, so if you email us you should not expect a reply until we re-open.
