Update on Leazes Road Library

(3 September 2020)

To reflect some of the changes we’re having to make around use of study facilities and in agreement with the Department of Education, Leazes Road Library is being re-purposed as a drop-in study space facility for Durham University Students.  

Books held there have been moved to our Remote Store, with a weekly retrieval service running throughout the academic year. More heavily used items will be held at Bill Bryson Library. 

We also have a wide range of online resources available, which have been developed further over the last few monthsThe majority of essential reading for modules should be available electronically - we recommend you search for these resources using Discover in the first instance for ease of access. 

If you have any queries, please contact our Virtual Enquiry Desk.
