Changes in the library this summer

Exciting changes are underway so here are a list of them with some key dates:

26 July – Extra  study spaces

We’ve just had 5 individual study pods and new student workstations installed on L3 (see photos below). When we’ve finished there will be an extra 21 study spaces in the library. All places will have an electricity supply.

1st Aug – remodelled front entrance area

The membership area will be replaced by a more modern “Welcome” desk. The issue desk will be removed, opening up the space to allow for the self service machines to be located in a central cluster, giving better access. Another machine and an additional book return box will be added at a later stage.

We will be also be introducing self-service collection of reserved items. The enquiry desk will be redesignated as a help point. Staff assistance will be available as usual, so please do ask for help if you have any queries.

10th Aug – UCL Library Management System migration

The library is migrating to the UCL Library Management System for borrowing books. From this date, you will need to use UCL Explore instead of IOE Library Search in order to find IOE Library materials. Your loans will be transferred automatically. To log into your library account, you will need to use your UCL barcode (on your ID card) and PIN. Further details are available here. Note that access to e-resources will be unchanged.

Here are some photo’s from the most recent work:
