UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health Library refurbishment
The UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health Library will be having a complete makeover this summer. To carry out this work we will be closing from the 19 June until mid-August.
What services will available while the library is shut?
· library staff will be available to help students and staff in the Wolfson Centre: https://tinyurl.com/khela58
· scheduled training sessions will carry on as advertised: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/ich/support-services/library/training/list-training
· staff will also be available for one to one support - email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Where else can I study?
You can use any of UCL’s libraries: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/library/sites/libraries. The closest one is the School of Pharmacy http://www.ucl.ac.uk/pharmacy/facilities/library
What about borrowing books & using the MSc. dissertations held in the library? What about returning books?
Unfortunately, the library will be a building site and entry will not be permitted for library staff or users. Borrowing will not be possible and we regret that we cannot operate a fetching service.
Please borrow all the books you need before the 19th June, they won’t be due before 25th September. If you need to return your books before the library reopens in August, please take them to the School of Pharmacy Library.
The MSc. dissertations held in the library will be transferred to the School of Pharmacy Library and can be consulted there.
I’m a GOSH member of staff – what about access to GOSH computers & accessing UCL e-journals?
There are GOSH computers which you can use at Weston House: http://www.gosh.nhs.uk/working-here/courses-and-conferences/training-facilities
UCL e-journals can be accessed using the Explore Access terminals at any UCL Library. Three are available at the School of Pharmacy
What will the new library look like?
The library is being completely refurbished and will have over 100 study spaces including computers. We’ll also have a new reception area, soft seating in the alcove areas, bookable pod for group work and a bookable training room for up to 8 people.
