Arts & Social Sciences 24/7 Study Centre

From Monday 16 October 2017 we will be opening the ground floor of the Arts & Social Sciences Library as a 24/7 study centre. The upper floors will continue to be open from 8am-11.30pm, Monday to Sunday. Although there won’t be an Information Desk Service overnight, we now offer an out of hours Ask a Librarian service for your library enquiries.

The entire Arts & Social Sciences Library is open 24/7 during the January and summer assessment periods. 

Loan laptops

We are pleased to announce that loan laptops will be available in the Arts & Social Sciences Library from Monday 16 October. The self-service locker is located at the back of the ground floor, you just need to your UCard to issue and return a laptop to use within the library. 

Trial access to eJournals from Wageningen Academic Publishers 

At the request of Bristol Veterinary School the Library has set up trial access to the following eJournals (login required off-site):

Wageningen Academic Publishers are located in one of the world’s most famous food and agriculture research centres (Wageningen University and Research) in the Netherlands and publish cutting edge research in the life and agricultural sciences.

Trail access extends from October 1 to November 30, 2017. Please send any comments about these resources to Emma Place, Subject Librarian for Veterinary Sciences.

New Library Search

We switched to our redesigned Library Search interface on Thursday, 24 August.

Please note:

  • all searches from the Library web pages will be directed to the new interface
  • any 'Permalinks' originally created in the former user interface will re-direct to the new interface
  • your 'e-Shelf' folders from the former interface will be converted to 'labels' in the new 'Favourites' area

A reminder that Library Search has been redesigned with a fresh, modern interface, one that is responsive to mobile devices. A beta version of the new interface was made available for several weeks during the summer vacation and the design and functionality was tweaked during that time. Further enhancements to the interface are planned by the software provider later in the year and we will continue to tweak the design and functionality as appropriate.  

If you have any comments about the new design please send them
