"In the room the women come and go. Talking of Michelangelo"

Wrote TS Eliot in the Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock. Next year you could well encounter similar snatches of conversation from people visiting the Brynmor Jones Library at Hull, which throughout January and February, is hosting  Lines of thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to now. The exhibition will feature works from some of the greatest artists, from Dürer to Degas, Michelangelo to Matisse and Rembrandt to Riley. The exhibition is free to attend during January and February at the University, as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017. So if you need to top up on your culture then get yourself to The University of Hull Library. See the website for booking information.

Christmas is nearly upon us...

...and with that comes Christmas Opening Hours:

The Brynmor Jones Library closes at 5pm on Christmas Eve and will re-open at 8:30am on Tuesday 27th December. The library will close again on Saturday 31 December at 5pm, will remain closed on 1 January, opening again at 8:30am on Monday  2 January. More information about Hull’s opening hours can be found on their website.  
The University Library will be closed from 4pm on Christmas Eve to 8am on Tuesday 27th December, and from 4pm on New Year's Eve to 8am on Monday 2nd January.
All loaned items from York are subject to recall throughout the Christmas vacation, but you'll have a whole week to get them back. Nothing will be due back between 22nd December and 5th January inclusive. More information about York's loans and hours can be found on their website.
Online Materials & SCONUL access:
It's worth remembering that most of the books we buy for HYMS are available electronically, so you should be able to access them wherever you are this Christmas. The same goes for our other e-resources. If you prefer something physical, you're in the UK or Ireland, and there's another university library nearby, you can always sign up to the SCONUL Access scheme which can get you into a large number of university libraries across the country.

We hope you have a great Christmas break and enjoy your holidays.
Best wishes, HYMS Library Team
