Divinit Faculty Library

  1. When you come to the Divinity Faculty Library entrance, please knock on door.
  2. Show us your University card so that they can see your name.
  3. We will find your bag of books.
  4. Please step back, we will open the door, and leave the bag there for you to pick up.
  5. Please be prepared to join a queue.

 How can you help?

If you can bring (and leave with us) an empty, usable plastic bag when you collect the volumes, then we can minimize the number of plastic bags we need to procure, you will get a plastic bag with books, and the environment and our budget will not be burdened by this more than absolutely necessary.

The above is subject to changes, as we are responding to "Acts of God" (strictly in the insurance sense of this expression), COVID19, and the Faculty and University opening and closing the front door.

The Library doors will remain _closed_ until COVID19 allows for a normal service (i.e. probably for most of 2020-21!), and you will not be able to enter it without having made an appointment.
