Q. Why are some libraries closed over the summer? Can I still borrow books from them?


The Physics, Queen's, Biological Sciences and Chemistry libraries, as well as all student centres apart from Beacon House are closed during the summer vacation for operational reasons. Books at closed libraries all are available for Click and Collect via Library Search - http://www.bristol.ac.uk/library/find/. When you find the book you require, click on the reserve button and you will then receive an email when it is ready to collect.
You can specify which library you would like to collect it from - please bear in mind that the Arts and Social Sciences Library has the longest opening hours - http://bristol.ac.uk/library/locations-opening/arts-social-sciences/Books are held on the reservation shelf for 7 days.
The Arts and Social Sciences Library, Education Library, Medical Library, Veterinary Sciences Library, Wills Memorial Library and Beacon House Study Centre are open over the summer. To study in the library you will  need to book a study space before visiting, but not to browse the shelves, return items and use printing facilities. Please check opening times before visiting (http://bristol.ac.uk/library/locations-opening/). You can also see the policy for visiting the libraries here: http://bristol.ac.uk/library/one-stop-shop/
