One of The University’s key goals as it moves into its third century is to be recognised as the top university in Europe for innovation. ID Manchester will be a significant step on that journey.
As ID Manchester moves forward, the Sackville Street Building will shortly close. In preparation for this, the Joule Library will close on Friday, 10 June at 5pm.
In terms of books, access will only be restricted whilst our collections are on the move. Most items will relocate to the Main Library and there are no plans to dispose of any material at this stage.
All books should be either on the open shelves or available on request by the start of the new academic year in September 2022. We are looking at how to resolve urgent access request over the summer as a priority. Items on loan from the Joule Library can be returned to the Main Library after the planned Joule closure date.
Thank you for your patience as we work to minimise the amount of disruption and try to get the books you need to you as quickly as possible.
