Library Services update 16/04/21

The Library will continue offering its Click and Collect service into the Summer Term. We hope it will be possible to return to browsing shelves from 17 May 2021. Bookable study space will also continue to be available at Vernon Square for those students who need it. The Library’s Scan and Deliver, Book a Librarian and enquiry services are available to support all students. You can access our collections of e-books, e-journals and online resources, together with those of Senate House Library, wherever you are.
