Reduced Opening Hours
Due to continued staff shortages, we are currently unable to extend our Medical Library opening hours beyond Monday-Friday, 9am-7pm.
We will extend these hours as soon as we can. In the meantime, other libraries and study centres are open later on weekdays and on weekends, including the Arts & Social Sciences, Wills Memorial and Queen's Building Libraries.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
