Science Library Windows Replacement Project

By Francine Wood, on 25 July 2014

This summer sees a major project to replace all the windows on the Darwin Walk and Malet Place elevations of the Science Library with high energy rating double glazed windows. 

Unfortunately, each room having a window replaced in it will be considered a building site and will need to be closed for several days.  This includes staff offices, service desks and various reading rooms.

We will do our best to keep disruption to a minimum and are aiming to offer a book fetching service for inaccessible material.  If you’re planning a trip for a particular title, please consider contacting us in advance to check that it’s available.

The schedule for closing spaces has yet to be confirmed, but work in the reading rooms for Psychology & Biological Sciences and Medical Sciences, is expected to take place in early August.  Information will be published on our Science Library Windows Replacement Project  news page, so please look there for updates.

Please accept our apologies for the disruption.  If anyone has any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact me.
