Hello, and welcome to another year at Birkbeck. If you are new we hope that you enjoy your time at Birkbeck and that we are able to help you with your studies. Please have a look at our web site and find out what we can offer. We are running tours of the library every week day throughout October so please feel free to join one of these. You don't need to book, just turn up and wait by the library turnstile - we're to the left of Costa Coffee. Remember that you need to bring in your college ID card when you use the library - if you don't have your plastic card yet you can print off a temporary "card" via your MyBirkbeck profile. This will get you in and will allow you to borrow items. The library is open 08.30 - 23.45 every day from now until 20th December.
If you are returning you won't find too many changes this year (bar one, of which more shortly). Some of the books have moved around a little to try to get them on the shelves but there have been no major upheavals. Firtunately the scaffolding we had in place for a few weeks to enable repairs and decoration to take place has been taken down and we are assured that the roof no longer leaks!
Don't forget that you can follow us on Twitter (@BirkbeckLibrary) and we are also on Facebook.
Good luck with your studies - and please ask us if you need any help in using the library or its resources.
