UCU Strike Update

Update Friday 16 March. Due to lack of staff, the library will close at 8pm tonight.

We hope to keep the Library open throughout our advertised opening hours during the industrial action planned in February and March. However we might not be able to offer a full service at all times: there will be no chat service; the Ground Floor desk should remain open but the first floor Help Desk may be unstaffed and some email enquiries may take longer to be dealt with than usual. You may want to contact us before travelling.

The days currently proposed for strike action are:

  • Thursday 22–Friday 23 February
  • Monday–Wednesday 26–28 February
  • Monday–Thursday 5–8 March
  • Monday–Friday 12–16 March
