University Library and Collections - Epiphany Term (Term 2)

During Epiphany Term, the University has provided clear Stay at Home guidance: 

With a very few exceptions, all teaching and learning will now be online only for the entirety of Epiphany Term – up to 19 March 2021. Students not currently in Durham should not return to Durham City before the start of Easter Term 2021, at the earliest. 

Visit to find out more about the national lockdown announced on Monday 4 January 2021. Please read the UK Government guidance on When You Can Leave Home before deciding on any travel. 

For those of you currently in Durham, to help protect our University and local community, you are asked to consider carefully if every visit to the Library or TLC is really essential to you.

We want to reassure you that regardless of where you are during the lockdown period, we will continue to support you through our online services, available to you anytime, anywhere. We have a vast collection of online resources accessible through Discover, specific subject support on our subject guides and help and support through our Virtual Enquiry Desk

Please see below for more details on our current available services.
