Please note:

  • Several libraries will maintain services on Thursday 17th and Tuesday 22nd April, which are otherwise regarded by UCL as campus ‘closed’ days;
  • Several libraries will maintain their normal ‘out of hours’ reference access for already-registered users, across the Easter period; and
  • On the central campus the JBR, Graduate Hub, Research Grid and Medical Students’ Hub learning spaces will all stay open for 24 hours throughout the whole of Easter, without closing at all.

Library stories

By Jes Cooban, on 19 February 2014

We are launching a competition for all UCL students called Library Stories. Entries can be in any format that can be submitted digitally eg a  short film, image, presentation or audio file. The first prize is an iPad Air with two runners up prizes of £50 Amazon vouchers. More information is at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/library/library-stories/

The aims of this competition are:

  • to identify what students think are the key pieces of information new students should know about the library
  • to identify creative ways of putting this information acrossipad-air-white

This can then feed into the creation of new library induction materials using multimedia technologies.
