The refurbishment of the Bill Bryson Library is continuing with the central area on Level 1, which has closed to proceed with work to the lighting, heating, ventilation, electrics and décor.

Books with shelfmarks 900 - 999 (Geography, Archaeology and History) have been moved temporarily to mobile shelving in the Level 1 East Wing during the refurbishment work.

Some areas of Level 1 remain open; the East Wing, the Journals at the North End of the floor (accessible via the East Wing or Staircase 5) and the Journals store in the West Wing (accessible via Staircase 2).

The refurbishment will repeat the work on Levels 3 and 4 to update the heating, lighting and ventilation systems, and provide additional power supplies to study desks.
