Restricted re-opening of the Library on 21st September due to on-going repair work

The Move – Updated 17th September 2009.

The Librarian regrets that, due to urgent repair work on the periodicals rolling stacks in the main part of the library, it has become necessary to close off this whole area for safety reasons. Access will therefore not be possible to readers or library staff until further notice for any items in the following sections:-

Archaeology / topography (102-116); Ancient History / Religion & Mythology / Philosophy / Science & Technology (117-127) Ancient art and numismatics (128-136); Ancient society and civilisation (152-153); Periodicals (Stacks 1-20), including current issues.

In addition, it will not be possible to access the Computer Room or the Photocopier Room.

However, access will be possible (with limited seating) to the following areas:-

Christian Fathers, (75-76); Language & Literature (80-99); Dictionaries and some reference works (60-70; 140-149); Papyrology and Epigraphy (100-101); Modern Greece, (151); General congresses (200); Collected works and Festschriften, (201-202); Classical Tradition and miscellaneous Classical Studies (203-206).

Once again, the Librarian is very sorry for the inconvenience that this will cause; it is hoped that a full service will be operational by Monday 28th September, but please keep watching this space for further announcements.
