Browse and Borrow

(23 July 2020)

As of Wednesday 29 July, we will be offering a Browse and Borrow service at Bill Bryson Library. A limited number of timeslots will be available for postgraduate students and staff to pre-book.  

You will be able to access the Library for up to an hour to browse the shelves and check out any books you require. This booking won’t give access to any study spaces – if you wish to book a study space, please see details of our Stay and Study service. If you know which books you want to borrow, please use our Click and Collect service. 

Although the number of users allowed in the building will be limited to ensure a safe environment for our users and staff, we will look to increase levels of occupancy and open bookings to all students as circumstances and guidance allow us to extend capacity. Services and procedures will be kept under review and revised in line with Government and University guidance.
