Libraries and open access computer rooms
An update on study space and libraries
We know how important it has been throughout the pandemic to make study spaces available on campus for those students who do not have an appropriate study space at home and need a space for individual study. You can now book spaces in the following locations, all of which have printing and scanning facilities:
- Edward Street
- Cockcroft Building Level One
- Watts Building Level Two
- Falmer computer room
- Eastbourne computer room.
The desks in these areas are suitable for general study as well as computer use and for the use of Teams to support remote learning. These are all bookable via the Book a PC tile on My Brighton and you can book 2 x 2 hour slots per day.
Please note that the study spaces in our libraries cannot be booked at this time.
- All spaces in computer rooms are for individual study only and must be pre-booked.
- Book before you leave home, making sure you bring your unicard as you will not be able to gain access to the rooms without it.
It is our responsibility to help protect each other, the students and staff of the university, so please be sure to follow all of the guidelines that are in place and remember that face coverings must be worn at all times and 2m social distancing protocols followed. And please do be respectful of our COVID marshals who will be on site to support students to follow the current guidelines.
Click and collect service
The university will be continuing with the click and collect services in all of our libraries. You can continue to place a reservation for the book you need on the catalogue as normal and we will email you when they are available for you to collect. We are also exploring ways in which we can enhance the service for those students who have not returned to the university through the provision of a COVID secure postal loan option where no alternative resources can be provided.
Online resources are available via your library subject guide and if you need advice or support in accessing these or other resources then please do contact your Information Adviser. You’ll find their contact details on your subject guide or email email@example.com.
Please remember that if you can study at home then in line with government and university advice you should not travel to campus.
Book drop facilities are available at all four campus libraries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details
If you are unable to return books to these, please contact us at email@example.com.
Remote support and advice
Our support and advice continues via email or Teams on the following:
- Literature searching
- Finding and evaluating information
- Finding and using images legally
- Systematic reviews
- Understanding referencing and using EndNote.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for help with any of these and with any further queries.
We aim to provide the same level of access to our services for all staff and students. Staff at all our service points would be happy to advise further.
