Ongoing maintenance work on level 5

The windows at the front of the Library on level 5 are being replaced. There will be noise and the temperature of the floor will be affected. Estates are making these essential improvements across the Easter vacation period (24 March – 8 April) and will aim to complete them as soon as possible.

uoblibrary buildingThe repairs follow problems with opening and closing several of the windows. This was adversely affecting our ability to regulate temperature in the building, which is particularly important during this very cold start to the year.

If you would like to study on Level 5 you can move to the middle and back of the floor.  If you specifically need to use Library computers, please go to the front of level 2, 3 or 4 of the Library or use the PCs in the training room on Level 1.

We Apologise for any inconvenience during these works.

International women’s day – part 2

For International women’s day, the University of Bath Library put together a display that explored the different women who had inspired the Library Staff.

During the week, while the display was up, the Library asked its users who had inspired them and we received a great response of names from our users.

These names have been now formed into a new collage display on Library level 2, sharing with everyone the women who have inspired the University of Bath.

Come check out the new inspirations.

New artwork on Level 2 celebrates University’s history

A new wall display arrived on Level 2 of the Library over the Christmas holiday. We wanted a permanent way to mark the University’s 50th birthday in 2016/2017. Inspired by the iconic cover of The Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band recorded in 1966/1967, our version of the original design by Peter Blake and Jann Haworth features lots of images from the archives; some held in deposited collections, some taken by the University Photographer and some donated by alumni. Together they document just about every aspect of the University’s rich and colourful history. We hope you enjoy it.
