Improving our libraries over summer


We’re excited to say that our libraries are changing. We have several renovation projects in the works this summer that will improve our spaces.

We apologise for any disruption that these projects may cause. If you have any questions, please contact the Library Helpline via phone, email or Live Chat.

James Cameron-Gifford Library

Our projects begin with a refurbishment of the B floor group study space at James Cameron-Gifford Library. Decoration began on Monday 6 June with repainting and will complete with a furniture upgrade taking place in July. We’ll be introducing booths as well as open plan group study tables and lounge chairs. All changes have been carefully considered from the feedback students have provided.

From 18 June, work will also be underway to replace the roof coverings at James Cameron-Gifford Library. It is estimated that this work will take six weeks. We expect this work to provide minimal disruption and the library will remain open throughout this time.

Djanogly Learning Resource Centre

Group study rooms at Djanogly LRC will be refurbished with freshly painted walls, new carpets, improved access to power and new furniture. This is planned to start the week beginning Monday 20 June.

Business Library

Estates are managing a couple building projects that will improve facilities at Business Library, however, this will mean some disruption over the summer.

The lift at Business Library will be closed from 20 June to 19 September for renovation. The library will remain open throughout the summer (including study space and Click and Collect) and can still be accessed via the stairs at the main entrance on A Floor.

Due to the work taking place there may be noise disruption at times.

Access to resources

For staff and students who are unable to use the stairs and need to access resources from Business Library, an on-demand book collection service is available. 

  1. Place a request on NUsearch and select 'Business Library' as the collection location
  2. Wait for your confirmation email before visiting the library
  3. When arriving at Business School South, call 0115 84 68065 and a member of staff will bring your books directly to you

This on-demand service will operate during library opening hours until 9pm Monday - Friday, and 4pm Saturday - Sunday.

Returns can be made through the ground floor 24/7 book box.

Alternative study spaces

Alternative study spaces can be found at Djanogly LRC or the Exchange Building.

Conferencing use of the Exchange Building means alternative space on the ground floor may not always be accessible.

Assistive Technology Rooms

Starting from Monday 27 June and running for 3 weeks, there will be a project to create a new Assistive Technology Room at Hallward Library (LG123).

We will also be upgrading the ATR software and hardware as part of this programme. Our aim is to provide a better experience for disabled students who are referred as eligible to use the rooms by Disability Support.
