Essential building works in the Music Faculty

Last week a small flood in the Music Faculty led to the discovery of major plumbing and heating problems affecting the whole building. This has necessitated some fairly major building work throughout the Music Faculty for the next 4-5 weeks, affecting the library in the following ways:

1. The lower ground floor will be inaccessible until the work has been completed. There will therefore be no access to the MRC including the iMacs and listening facilities and no access to the CD collections. There are PCs with Sibelius software on them in the main library, please ask staff if you can't find them.

2. One of the photocopy machines/printers/scanners has been relocated to the ground floor of the main library, near to the composer collected works. There will only be access to this one machine in the MFL so please plan ahead in case of high demand.

3. There will be some degree of noise in the library while the work is being carried out.

4. There will be no heating in the MFL for at least the next 2 weeks. The temperature is fine at the moment but please bear in mind if the weather takes a turn for the worse that it may get a little chilly in the library.

We will keep our readers updated as and when we find out any more details about the works but we apologise in advance for the disruption they will cause. If you have any questions about the works and how they might affect you, please email the library and we'll do our best to answer them.
