UoN Libraries Easter opening and borrowing services
The end of the Spring term is on 23 March, our library opening times will change for the vacation and also over the Easter Bank Holiday. Some of our borrowing services will also alter as a consequence of Easter closure days.
The last day of term is Friday 23 March which signals the end of this session of 24/7 for Hallward Library and a move into vacation opening times for all of our libraries. We have special arrangements in place for the Easter Bank Holiday which will be as follows:
Library opening times over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend
In line with the rest of the University, our libraries will be closed from Good Friday 30 March to Easter Monday 2 April inclusive, however our bigger libraries will open again on Tuesday 3 April between 9am and 5pm. Music Library and Manuscripts and Special Collections will remain closed as will the rest of the University on 3 April.
On Wednesday 4 April all libraries will re-open and revert back to vacation times.
Book borrowing services information
Books which are on loan can be reserved and recalled from you throughout the Easter vacation, we do this because it is a key revision and coursework submission time for many of our students and we aim to keep access to books available. This means that the return date of your books may be shortened, you will be emailed if this happens. You may also check your own library account on NUsearch to make sure your books do not go over their due date. Fines will be payable on all overdue books and we expect you to post books back to us, if you cannot return them in person.
During the Easter Bank Holiday closure dates the short loan book periods have been extended, this means that if you borrow a short loan on Thursday 29 March you may keep it until Tuesday 3 April.
