We're busy working on the plan to reopen our Library buildings, and to welcome you back on campus safely. This will happen in several stages with the health and safety of students and university staff as the most important factor. The first stage was to make provision for you to return books on loan and you can now do that. The next is to have Library staff back on campus, initially behind the scenes, to start up a "click and collect" service for you to borrow books in August (date to be confirmed). We'll then open the Libraries from 1 September for you to study by booking a space. In the meantime we're working on movement routes, protocols for shared use of books and equipment, booking systems and safe staff working arrangements. We will announce the dates for each of these stages as soon as we can.
The Library service is still open online with these web pages giving you access to thousands of electronic resources and online help and support.
Please follow us on Twitter @BeckettLibrary for the most recent updates.
