Library update


Reserve a Bloomberg workstation
Finance Zone PCs 1 and 2 (of the 8 in total) may now be booked in advance for Bloomberg use. You can reserve a terminal for a one hour session for a maximum of two hours per day using the online booking form.  


More quiet space in Library
The Library was exceptionally busy in Autumn term so we have now secured additional study space for student use on the 4th floor. It is a light and airy space available for quiet study. The Library has a mix of group, quiet, and silent spaces. The Silent study space is on the 2nd Floor Linhope street side.

Please respect others’ need for quiet and use the designated group work areas on the 2nd floor if you need to talk.
