Bannerman Electrical Safety Testing Work - 9.4.2022 to 26.4.2022

“ A major programme of electrical safety testing work will be happening in the Library and Bannerman building throughout the Easter Vacation. This will involve some testing of live cabling and circuitry and means some floors will be closed, on different days and times, to ensure this can be done as safely as possible.

We will run the Click and Collect, Click and Post and Scan and Send Services up to when the University closes for Easter, on 13.4.2022 and after the University reopens on 19.4.2022. We hope, in this way, to keep disruption to a minimum and to make items on closed floors available for as long as possible. However, unavoidably, there will be no staff available to run this service between 13.4.2022 and 19.4.2022 and books and journals on the 3rd floor in particular, Periodicals and Law Library, will not be available. Please ensure that you order any items from the Law Library in good time and have made notes or copies from the print journals, if you think you may need them after 13.4.2022.

When floors are closed the Group Study Rooms on that particular floor and other study spaces will not be available but there should be study spaces and Group study Rooms available on the other floors throughout the period. Please note the Library is completely closed over the 4 day Easter Bank Holiday weekend, 15.4.2022 to 18.4.2022 and no services or study spaces will be available. Full Easter opening times can bees seen by clicking  on the Opening Times on the Library homepage. 

One or more of the Lifts may not work at different times during the period of work but at least one lift should be operational at all times.

The full schedule of works and closures are on display at the Library entrance and daily floor closure will also be posted, in more detail, on that display and on the Library’s Twitter and Instagram channels nearer the time. Closed floors will be clearly sign posted and barriers placed across the entrances. Please abide by these closures and do not attempt to access these floors for your own safety and of the electricians carrying out the testing work.”
