The books have moved

Preparation work for the refurbishment of the second floor of the Sheila Silver Library continues at a fast pace.  Over 85,000 books and 474 bays of shelving have now been moved.

All of the books are now in their new homes. This has included moving stock into two IT labs (G28 and G29) on the ground floor.

The new locations for all of the book stock in the Library are:

  • 000-306.39 – Ground Floor
  • 306.4-339.99 – G29 Ground Floor
  • 340 -349.99 (Law) – Third Floor
  • 350 – 599.99 – G28 Ground Floor
  • 600-799.99 – First Floor
  • 800 – 999 – Third Floor

The archive which was previously on the second floor has also been packed up. Some items will be taken to the Headingley archive, but the majority has been put into storage. For more information about this please contact Archives@leedsbeckett.ac.uk

Once all the books have been moved and the second floor has been cleared, the construction work will begin.

At Headingley Library work has now started on the refurbishment of the IT Labs.  Three of the IT Labs on the second floor (219, 221 and 225b) are being given a new look and feel to match the style of the labs that were revamped last summer.
