ISG services over the holiday period

Information about our services over the holiday period.

Most University buildings will be closed from 5pm on Friday 23 December 2016 until 9am on Wednesday 4 January 2017.

ISG online services

All ISG online services will be running throughout the period of University closure.

Although ISG support staff will not be working during the holiday period, we will be monitoring our high priority services. If there is a service failure during this period we will try to resolve it if possible. However there may be issues we cannot deal with until the University re-opens on 4 January 2017.

You can view the status of our priority services at any time on our Status and Alerts page.

Library opening hours

All libraries are closed from 24 December to 3 January 2016 inclusive, except for the Main Library which is open from 9am to 5pm on 28 and 29 December (Helpdesk and Library Café closed).

Library borrowing

Information about borrowing books and laptops can be found on our borrowing pages.

Please check the return dates of items due back during the vacation, and be sure to renew in good time if necessary.  You can do this either through MyEd or by signing into your account via DiscoverEd. The Main Library has an external book box (to the right of the front door), where books may be returned when the Library is closed.
