The Move: Further progress

The five library staff are all working on the new arrangement of books and journals in the refurbished 3rd floor Library. The new library counter / reception area will be directly opposite the lifts in the South Block. The entrance to the library will be to the left side of the counter, down the corridor which used to house two seminar rooms. These rooms, and the corridor, will contain the large literature section. Following on from this we are creating an area for papyrology and epigraphy, and related journals. The library continues around to the left and the large room is now the area for archaeology, art and architecture volumes. We hope to have shelves erected in the staff work areas, when we will be able to unpack.

This is an example of a selection of books, prior to our sorting and tidying.
