Library Services update: coronavirus

Last updated 25 March 2020.

Following the announcement that the University is to move to restricted campus operations, Main Library will close at 17:00 on Friday 20 March until at least the 1 June. All site libraries are currently closed until further notice.

A reminder that during this time we are being flexible regarding loans:

  • Please hold onto books until we reopen. Nothing will be due back until June.
  • We will not be fining anyone during this period.
  • We will cover the renewal of inter-library loan items from other institutions.

While the Library is closed you can still access services online, including online skills support, additional e-books, e-journals and other online resources available via our website and FindIt@Bham.

See our FAQs for students and staff for more information.

For all information or questions relating to the wider University, there is separate guidance for staff and students provided centrally by the University of Birmingham.
