Your libraries in September 2020.

Both the Drill Hall and Augustine House Library are planning a phased reopening over the summer to enable them to be ready to provide the best service they can in the new academic year, while adhering to the latest Government guidelines and ensuring the health and safety of all.

In September the Library Team will be available for advice and support via face-to-face, email or telephone.

In addition, they will continue to offer the Digital Library, with access to a full range of online resources including e-books, journals, databases and multimedia.

Augustine House will implement a range of health and safety measures, including:

  • Regular cleaning protocols, with all surfaces, including the self-service borrowing and returning facilities, thoroughly and regularly cleaned.
  • Hand sanitising stations.
  • Physical distancing measures, with signage indicating safe spacing in queues.
  • All returned items stored away for 72 hours until risks of virus transmission have been mitigated.
