Renovation Notice

Dear colleagues/students
 
This serves as a notice to all library users that some sections of the library floors will be closed during the forthcoming refurbishment work which will commence on 25 August 2016. The work will be performed in two phases as follows:
 
  • Phase one: Refurbishment of the North Wing of the Ground floor and the 1st floor;
  • Phase two: Construction of the Research Commons for Honours, Masters and Doctoral students, and the Refurbishment of the South Wing of the 1st floor.
The first phase is envisaged to end at the end of September 2016, while the refurbishment of the South Wing of the 1st floor shall end at the end of October 2016. The construction of the Research Commons will end around the end of April 2017.
 
We appeal to all users to bear with us during the said period of the refurbishment of the Library and the construction of the Research Commons. We are making every effort to ensure that disruption to normal service is minimal.
 
The lower ground floor, which includes the law library and the 24 hour study centre, is not part of the refurbishment project, and will therefore be available for normal use, in addition to the study venues available in faculties. We also encourage staff and students to borrow required books few days before the onset of the project in order to avoid unnecessary inconveniences.
