York Help Desk changes

The University of York Library and IT Services have been reviewing the way they provide support and information.
The Library Help Desk at the University of York is now staffed from 9am - 7pm on weekdays, and 10am-6pm at weekends. The only exception will be during Summer vacations when the Help Desk will be closed on Sundays. The Library itself is open 24 hours a day, 362 days a year.
In addition to this, from the New Year, York's Library Help Desk will be answering first-line IT queries as well as Library enquiries, extending the IT support hours available.

Official opening of the Brynmor Jones Library at the University of Hull 16 September 2015

Today marked the official opening of the Brynmor Jones Library at the University of Hull, with an opening ceremony in the exhibition space on the ground floor of the library. The ceremony was led by the poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy who holds an honorary doctorate at the University. The poet unveiled a plaque commemorating the occasion.

The Brynmor Jones Library underwent a redevelopment beginning in September 2012 which has transformed the building in terms of what students spaces are available and refreshing the technological infrastructure for the 21st Century.

The exhibition space features a display of images from the building's history with explanatory notes which will be available to view until the end of October.
