Most spaces, services and facilities you find and use in our libraries are managed by Library staff.  However some are primarily looked after by our partners.  You can always contact Library staff if you require assistance of any kind, but if we can’t help, we will make sure you are put in touch with the people who can.

Estates & Buildings

1st floor plans

Library staff regularly patrol our buildings and report any defects to the University’s Estates & Buildings department. However if you notice a fault - broken toilet, flickering light, too warm, too cold, you can email and we can forward your comments.  Please remember to indicate which of our library sites you are at. Thank you.
