JSTOR reactivation time

Do you have a JSTOR account?

You will need to reactivate it soon because JSTOR periodically changes our access authorisation. This will only happen about once a year and it's very easy.

Simply open the JSTOR link from one of the library computers upstairs and login from that screen. If you haven't used JSTOR before, follow the instructions on the noticeboard to register.

Let us know if you need any assistance!

Opening hours - October break

Monday 5th - Friday 9th October: CLOSED
Monday 12th - Friday 16th October: 10.00am - 4.00pm

You may have noticed that we've been having a few problems with our system lately. Well, the whole thing is being upgraded during the first week of the October holidays, and sadly that means that we will not be able to open that week.

We really are sorry for the inconvenience but we hope to see you in the second week, when we'll be open every day.

Enjoy the break from classes and make sure you visit before the last day of term to get everything you need.
