A reminder that as part of phase one of the recently announced Building Connections Campaign, we will be carrying out a project to make changes to the collections held in our basement.

In addition to creating a back-of-house catering kitchen to support Library events and venue hire, we plan to create a space to more securely house the Library’s Archive, a selection of older and more fragile books from our open shelves, and an invigilation space for members to view items held in closed access.

In order to create the space for this project, we need to remove some of our collection to off-site store.These are proposed to be the foreign language periodicals and foreign language society publications held in the basement, together with some periodical titles that have been cancelled since 2010.

A full list of the titles proposed to be moved to off-site store is available at the Issue Desk or by email.

Members may request a copy of the list and comment on these proposals by Friday 28 June, by contacting us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
