Special Collections Building Works News and Service Issues

Movement of stock on Floor 02: May 2017-September 2017

We will be re-organising the layout of the open area in Floor 02 in J.B. Priestley Library.  As this is adjacent to Special Collections, expect minor disruption.

Forthcoming works

Transformation project: tbc

We aim to transform Special Collections, creating high quality storage for our unique archives and purpose-built spaces for our users.  These works will be part of a larger programme which will complete the refurbishment of the J.B. Priestley Library: from outdated 1970s layout and furniture to a space which meets the needs of our students and staff now and into the future.  It is likely that the collections will have to be stored off-site for several months, so users will have to pre-order the items they wish to see.  If we are going ahead, we expect to start moving collections out at least six months ahead of time.  Planning to visit us in the future?  Let us know!  We can then keep in touch with you and prioritise work on the collections you wish to use.
