Open collections

If a book is available in the library (that is, it’s not on loan or reserved), the borrower must collect it from the shelf. The last three years of most print journals are housed in the library. These are available for one-day loan.

Many of our books and journals are in closed-access storage areas. To order these, you need to use Oria or to ask the service desk staff. We have fixed times for fetching material.
